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

Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

October 14 A..D. 2009

Scripture from today's Liturgy of the Word:

Romans 2:1-11
Psalm 62:2-3, 6-7, 9
Luke 11:42-46

A reflection on today's Scripture:

In today's Responsorial Psalm, the words "I shall not be disturbed" jumped out at me!
(see the Responsorial Psalm) http://www.nccbuscc.org/nab/101409.shtml)

Being disturbed as you know, is not pleasant. More and more, it seems, we and others are agitated and disturbed.
Though much of what disturbs us is often beyond our control and seems inevitable and inescapable; there's a remedy.
It doesn't mean that disturbance will go away, but that it will find its proper place and show itself for what it is, a situation in need of God's grace.

So when you're feeling disturbed ask God, to help you. Ask Him to give you His peace -- not just once mind you, but often -- over and over again; habitually.

Instead of staying disturbed, pray the little prayers, tell God how much you are in need of Him -- little prayers, short, succinct, to the point, the cries from your heart.

"Help me Lord. Help me Lord. Help me Lord."

Then let Him do it! Let Him help you!

The disturbance will find its proper place and the love and peace of Christ, its proper place -- that is, your open, trusting, expectant humble heart.
