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

Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

April 15 A..D. 2009

Scripture from today's Liturgy of the Word:

Acts 3:1-10
Psalm 105:1-2, 3-4, 6-7, 8-9
Luke 24:13-35

A reflection on today's Scripture:

It's hard to write about the readings for today, especially because I'm doing it on the Wednesday before Holy Thursday. What I realize with greater awareness, is how pivotal the events of the Triduum, culminating with the Resurrection of Jesus, are to us, regardless of the date on the calendar.

The Eucharist, The Passion, The Resurrection -- they are what form the foundation of our faith, the reason for hope in our troubled lives and the world. In them we find the answer to all our basic needs -- and then some.

Are you hungry? Feast on the Body and Blood of Christ!

Are you in need of clothing? Clothe yourself in the same humility as did Jesus on the way to Calvary.

Do you need shelter? Hide yourself in quietude, dead to the troubles that surround you, confident as was Jesus in His hewn grave, that death was not the end.

And for what purpose? So that with Him and in Him and through Him we might rise triumphant on the third day, able to proclaim to everyone we meet on our walk, what it is we have seen, heard and experienced.

The Lord is Risen, as He Promised. Alleluia!
