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

Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

May 4 A..D. 2010

Scripture from today's Liturgy of the Word:

Acts 14:19-28
Psalm 145:10-11, 12-13ab, 21
John 14:27-31a

A reflection on today's Scripture:

Today in the news, I saw a picture of a sad-faced man condemned to die by, believe it or not, a firing squad!

Our Responsorial Psalm today tells us that, as God's faithful ones, we must speak of His might and the Glory of His kingdom.

And what is it that demonstrates God's might? Is it the events in those ancient stories that speak about manna in the wilderness, or the parting of the Red Sea? Or is it something else, something more current and personal to us?

Divine Justice, Divine Mercy - these are what speak most eloquently of God's might. They give everyone who seeks it, forgiveness of their sins and access to the Glory of His Kingdom.

Please pray for the man condemned to die and for all of us, that we may experience the Might of God, His Divine ineffable Mercy and the Glory of His Kingdom.
