Every day, we need to go to our quiet place...

Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

April 3, A.D. 2008

Scripture from today's Liturgy of the Word:

Acts 5:27-33
Psalm 34:2 and 9, 17-18, 19-20
John 3:31-36

A reflection on today's Scripture:

When you read the First Reading for today it is useful to remember it is St. Peter who is speaking—Peter, the rough-hewn fisherman. But his words and style are anything but rough hewn; they are beautifully composed and flow with simple grace.

To be sure, it is because of divine grace that Peter became such an effective promoter and defender of the Good News. His passionate honesty, coupled with God's gift of grace, became the means God used to build His Church.

To be heralds of the Good News, we too must use our gifts and God's transforming grace.

During this Easter Season let us take the time to identify what particular gifts God has given to us. Then with God's grace let us put them to good use. Let us spread the Good News!

The Lord has risen as He promised!
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
