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

Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

June 19 A..D. 2010

Scripture from today's Liturgy of the Word:

2 Chronicles 24:17-25
Psalm 89:4-5, 29-30, 31-32, 33-34
Matthew 6:24-34

A reflection on today's Scripture:

No man can serve two masters. . . .

Jesus warns us that a divided affection will lead to no affection at all. When we choose against God, we also choose to split ourselves.

Ideally we are spirit, mind, and flesh, all one united organism, all dedicated to living and worshipping God. When we listen to the promptings of the world, we are hearing encouragement to split ourselves to divide our loyalties.

A house divided against itself cannot stand. Listen to the words of Jesus and choose the good master. Money is a hard master because no matter how much we have, if it is our master, we need more. But Jesus reminds us that His yoke is easy, His burden light.

Let us then dedicate ourselves, heart and soul, to the worship and love of Jesus. Let us dedicate ourselves through the Immaculate Heart of Mary whose love for us purifies and makes perfect all of our intentions. Through her graceful intercession, she will keep us true to the Master Who will reward us with His love both now and in the world to come.

Jesus Is Lord! Praise Him!
