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

Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

March 31 A..D. 2010

Scripture from today's Liturgy of the Word:

Isaiah 50:4-9a
Psalm 69:8-10, 21-22, 31 and 33-34
Matthew 26:14-25

A reflection on today's Scripture:

My friends, as we close the Lenten season and our time of penance and renewal, with our hope reborn as we look to the glory of Easter morning, I ask you to consider one last thing.

Today's gospel is one of the saddest tragedies in all of history. One of those chosen by the Anointed One of God to be closest to Him in His work on earth betrays Him and with full knowledge of what he has done to his Lord, he continues his betrayal by saying, "Surely it is not I, Rabbi?" We know what happens to them both. The depths of evil are almost too much to comprehend.

I ask you to consider this: every time we sin, every time we turn our backs on our Lord, every time we succumb to the wants of the flesh and the world, we are part of the betrayal, the arrest, the crucifixion and death of our God. Ask yourself, "Have I really been renewed through Lent? Have I truly become reconciled to my Lord and His church? Am I truly ready to see the risen Lord on Easter Morning?"

I will pray for you, and ask that you pray for one another, and may God richly bless us as we find the tomb empty and our Lord alive and with us this Easter and always.
