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

Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

November 24 A..D. 2009

Scripture from today's Liturgy of the Word:

Daniel 2:31-45
Daniel 3:57, 58, 59, 60, 61
Luke 21:5-11

A reflection on today's Scripture:

Bless the Lord, all you works of the Lord, praise and exalt him above all forever.
(Daniel 3:57)

Not everyone will be sitting down to a homespun Thanksgiving feast this week, but we all have reasons to be thankful. In these exhausting economic times, if you're finding yourself stretched for one, try to look at the most astonishing of our blessings, which we share with each other purely because we enjoy the same awe-inspiring Creator:

"May you be praised, O Lord, in all your creatures, especially brother sun, by whom you give us light for the day; he is beautiful, radiating great splendor, and offering us a symbol of you, the Most High. . . . May you be praised, my Lord, for sister water, who is very useful and humble, precious and chaste. . . . May you be praised, my Lord, for sister earth, our mother, who bears and feeds us, and produces the variety of fruits and dappled flowers and grasses. . . . Praise and bless my Lord, give thanks and serve Him in all humility." St. Francis of Assisi, Canticle of the Creatures, Catechism, Para. 344

Each of us is directed to give our Lord praise and thanksgiving, today and every day that His Love commits us here.
