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

Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

April 3 A..D. 2010

Scripture from today's Liturgy of the Word:

Exodus 14:15--15:1
Exodus 15:1-2, 3-4, 5-6, 17-18
Romans 6:3-11
Psalm 118:1-2, 16-17, 22-23
Luke 24:1-12

A reflection on today's Scripture:

They did not find His body. . . .

Can you imagine the shock of those who went to the tomb? Can you imagine what it must have been like to stand outside the tomb and see that the stone had been rolled away, to enter and find that something had happened to the body of the one you loved most?

How horrifying that must have been and when angels suddenly show up and start telling you that this person is living, what must stir within you?

This is the season of joy, the season of resurrection, the season during which we come to know once gain that our God is the God of the living, not of the dead, for those who die knowing Him are more alive than we are. They stand in His presence which is life itself while we see only dimly and from afar.

Rejoice, rejoice, all you faithful because the Lord Who died and was buried rose once and for all time and for all people. Because of Him we are renewed and resurrected. We can come to know life and know the true love of One who stretched out His arms on the cross and who rose to stretch out His arms to all His people, to call them home to God, the loving Father.
