Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

May 27 A..D. 2009

Scripture from today's Liturgy of the Word:

Acts 20:28-38
Psalm 68:29-30, 33-35a, 35bc-36ab
John 17:11b-19

A reflection on today's Scripture:

In today's First Reading, Saint Paul tells the presbyters of the Church at Ephesus to keep watch over themselves and over the flock the Holy Spirit appointed them to oversee. Hearing this makes me question: what part of the flock has the Lord entrusted to me, or to you?

It's a serious inquiry because it has to do with the extension and preservation of the Body of Christ.

Some may think that only certain ones have been called to be missionaries for Christ; yet, by our Baptism, we have all received the commission to spread the Good News.

It could be worrisome if we thought we had to depend on ourselves to do it, for few of us seem to have the natural ability to be convincing preachers and teachers. Yet, we have more than natural gifts. We have the supernatural gifts that God has placed at the disposal of those who do His will.

And what is the will of God? It is that all might be saved.

Go! Tell all the world the Good News of Jesus!

As you sent me into the world,
so I sent them into the world.
And I consecrate myself for them,
so that they also may be consecrated in truth. (John 17:18-19)
