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

Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

Februrary 13 A.D. 2009

Scripture from today's Liturgy of the Word:

Genesis 3:1-8
Psalm 32:1-2, 5, 6, 7
Mark 7:31-37

A reflection on today's Scripture:

He has done all things well.
He makes the deaf hear and the mute speak. (Mark 7:37)

Christ performed many miracles during His time among us. His creation was evidenced in the spiritual and physical healing of men, women and children of all socioeconomic backgrounds, with a great variety of ailments and concerns. He chose to interact with people on a one-to-one basis rather than heal large crowds of people. Often He would show personal concern by touching the person, but He could also be stern if the situation warranted it.

We, as Christians, are now the hands and feet of Christ to let His creating power reach others in need. As we go about our daily responsibilities there are endless opportunities to continue this creation such as through a smile, a kind deed, a few moments of listening to another's concerns, or a word of encouragement.

After awhile, it can become almost a "dance of creation." We just need to listen to the "music of Christ" and be ready to step into the rhythm of life.

- Joan of Jesus, OCDS
