Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

May 10, A.D. 2008

Scripture from today's Liturgy of the Word:

Acts 28:16-20, 30-31
Psalm 11:4, 5 and 7
John 21:20-25

A reflection on today's Scripture:

Now it seems it will soon be over. The Easter Season is coming to an end. Today we hear about the imprisonment of Paul in Rome and Jesus' discussion about Peter's eventual death by crucifixion.

O Lord, does this joyous season have to end like this? After the glory and triumph of your resurrection, do the Church's last words this Easter season have to be about death and imprisonment?

Lord, if it wasn't for your grace I might feel despondent. In fact, even with your grace I am feeling a bit weary, but I will wait Lord. I will wait like the apostles and the women in the Upper Room. I will wait in constant prayer for the outpouring of your Holy Spirit. I long to be filled. Come Sanctifier. Come O Comforter. Come Divine Wisdom!

Come Holy Spirit,
come and fill the hearts of your faithful
and enkindle in us the fire of your love.
Alleluia! Alleluia!
