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

Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

May 1 A..D. 2010

Scripture from today's Liturgy of the Word:

Acts 13:44-52
Psalm 98:1, 2-3ab, 3cd-4
John 14:7-14

A reflection on today's Scripture:

Do you not believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me? (John 14:10)

Stop and think for a moment. What do YOU believe about Jesus? Really! Can you answer the question above positively? Is that truly what you mean when you say "Jesus is God"?

When, in our prayer and contemplation, we look upon the face of Jesus, we see the face of God the Father. Think about this because it is a radical change in the way God deals with His people. Moses feared to look upon God's face and turned so that God could pass by and he could look only after God had passed by. But Jesus gave God a Human face. We are all invited to look upon that holy face and live. Indeed, we will live even better for being able to do so.

In Jesus, God entered the next stage of revelation. He showed us His face, the face of love, of compassion, of limitless and unconditional love. The face of a man who was God, who stretched himself out between Earth and Heaven, taking upon Himself all of our sins. This is the face of God and it is a face reflected in every Child of God, for every person on Earth has his or her Father's eyes.
