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

Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

March 4 A.D. 2009

Scripture from today's Liturgy of the Word:

Jonah 3:1-10
Psalm 51:3-4, 12-13, 18-19
Luke 11:29-32

A reflection on today's Scripture:

In today's Responsorial Psalm the psalmist begs God to forgive him and to blot out all of his offenses.

Have you ever tried to blot out something and ended up making a worse mess and made it all the more obvious that underneath there was a mistake? Perhaps that's why we often carry around residual guilt, even though we believe God has forgiven us. We fail to understand that God is not like us. When He blots out something, it's really gone, done, finished; there is no residual, ugly smudge!

Let us spend some time this Lent meditating on the power of Christ's redeeming death which took away (totally) our sins and the sins of the world.

"The Lord laid upon him the guilt of us all." (Isaiah 53:6)
"By his wounds we were healed." (1 Peter 2:24)
