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

Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

December 22 A..D. 2009

Scripture from today's Liturgy of the Word:

Zephaniah 3:1-2, 9-13
Psalm 34:2-3, 6-7, 17-18, 19 and 23
Matthew 21:28-32

A reflection on today's Scripture:

The first verse is something - donít you think? - that we should all be able to say:

My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord;
my spirit rejoices in God my savior,
for he has looked with favor upon his lowly servant.

Isnít it true? Hasnít God looked down from heaven and bestowed on us many, many favors?

It is so important to recognize our blessings, to take the time and recognize Godís goodness. It requires sometimes the development of an attitude which sees everything as an opportunity for the goodness of God to triumph, even things which at first glance donít seem to be much of a blessing.

There are very few days left now, until the great feast of Christís birth. Let us enter into a spirit of quiet expectation and meditate on how the favor of God upon Mary is a favor that has been granted also to us who bear the saving mark of Jesus upon our soul.
