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

Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

November 27 A..D. 2009

Scripture from today's Liturgy of the Word:

Daniel 7:2-14
Daniel 3:75, 76, 77, 78, 79, 80, 81
Luke 21:29-33

A reflection on today's Scripture:

The individual prayers of the Mass are beautiful.

One in particular that is both challenging and reassuring is "May He make us an everlasting gift to You."

Most cultures use words as a primary tool for information. We follow up words with action, but it is the word that is significant. If then we are to be formed as an everlasting gift for God, what better method than turning to scripture as a primary guide. In the gospel of today Christ points out, "the heavens and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away." (see Luke 21:33)

Advent is almost upon us, when we will celebrate the coming of the Word as flesh and blood. Let us enter the season with the realization that the Word can inform our "flesh and blood" if we but open our hearts and minds.

"Light of the world, come and enlighten us."

- Joan of Jesus, OCDS
