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

Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

April 21 A..D. 2009

Scripture from today's Liturgy of the Word:

Acts 4:32-37
Psalm 93:1ab, 1cd-2, 5
John 3:7b-15

A reflection on today's Scripture:

From everlasting You are, O Lord. (Psalm 93:2)

These daily meditations are composed several weeks before they're printed, so while I'm writing about the joyful Second Tuesday after Easter, my heart still aches following the dramatic Passion Reading I heard at this morning's Palm Sunday Mass.

But by the time you read this, the heartbreak of Lent will be over, and we'll have again seen how Jesus makes all things new -- not only for us, but for Himself. In today's Responsorial Psalm, we hear the psalmist's Hymn of the Lord's Kingship, "The Lord is King, in splendor robed." (Psalm 93:1) Once a King clothed in purple and crowned with thorns, Jesus is now the Mighty King, robed in majesty.

O Jesus, You are the source of my joy, today and every day.
Hosanna in the Highest!
