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

Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

September 25 A..D. 2009

Scripture from today's Liturgy of the Word:

Haggai 2:1-9
Psalm 43:1, 2, 3, 4
Luke 9:18-22

A reflection on today's Scripture:

Who do you say that I am? (Luke 9:20)

This important question continues through the ages and is also addressed to us as individuals. Is the way we answer the question today any different from the way it would have been ten years ago? Are we maturing in our faith, in our relationship with Christ and with the community members with whom we live?

Prior to the question above, Christ asked His disciples, "Who do the crowds say that I am?" (Luke 9:18) The same could be asked regarding ourselves. How would we be identified by members of the community? Could their responses be identified with those of a good Christian? Would we be known for our acts of charity, of the spiritual and corporal acts of mercy, or only by the secular values of status, money and/or property?

Who do we say Christ is to us today, and who would others say that we are?
