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

Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

January 23 A..D. 2010

Scripture from today's Liturgy of the Word:

2 Samuel 1:1-4, 11-12, 19, 23-27
Psalm 80:2-3, 5-7
Mark 3:20-21

A reflection on today's Scripture:

He is out of His Mind. . . . (Mark 3:21)

He would have to be (out of His mind) if He ever thought He was going to get much service out of humankind. What was He thinking? These faithless people who slew the prophets? These men who washed the outside of the vessel but ignored the corruption within? What could He have been thinking?

Perhaps, He wasn't thinking. Perhaps He was loving and showing us the way to love. And we all know that lovers are out of their heads. They're completely oblivious to reality, they have their heads in the clouds and they float along oblivious. But the sort of oblivion Jesus brought with Him, healed the lame and sick, gave sight to the blind, gave hearing to the deaf, broke our hearts made of stone and gave us human hearts to love with.

Yes, thank God, He is out of His mind and He is deeply within His heart and our hearts. Praise God!
