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

Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

April 25, A.D. 2008

Scripture from today's Liturgy of the Word:

1 Peter 5:5b-14
Psalm 89:2-3, 6-7, 16-17
Mark 16:15-20

A reflection on today's Scripture:

On this feast of St. Mark the evangelist, I encourage you to read, reread and then reflect on today's First Reading as it holds infinitely more than what I can begin to convey to you. As you do this, consider these thoughts:

Do I clothe myself in humility or am I over-proud in my dealings with others?

Do I humble myself under God's hand or at times do I ignore His teaching and guidance?

Am I sober and vigilant, or do I let my guard down exposing me to the evil of the enemy?

Am I steadfast in my faith, or do I sometimes waiver with doubt?

Do I realize that I do not suffer alone and that in due time God will restore me?

Do I remain firm in His true grace?

After your reflection, renew yourself in your faith, in quiet prayer, knowing that you can cast all your worries on the all-loving God and He will exalt you in due time—in His time.
