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

Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

May 6 A..D. 2009

Scripture from today's Liturgy of the Word:

Acts 12:24-13:5a
Psalm 67:2-3, 5, 6 and 8
John 12:44-50

A reflection on today's Scripture:

Again we read about our early, infant Church and hear how Paul, who once persecuted it, is now sent by the Holy Spirit as one of its greatest advocates.

It is a wonderful lesson and makes us careful about second-guessing people and the part God may have for them in salvation history. It also helps us to consider what our role is and if we are taking hold of it as God would have us do.

To be responsive to the will of God requires that we are focused on God and are willing to respond as He desires. To do this we must be habitually inclined toward Him, something that develops only when He becomes the center of our lives.

That does not mean there is no time or room for other things; it only means that we must set things in their proper place and not let things that in the end won't matter take over what will.

And, what is it that in the end matters, but to love God with our whole heart and our neighbor as ourselves. The formula is simple. Living it is our part in salvation history.
