Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

Augst 11 A..D. 2010

Scripture from today's Liturgy of the Word:

Ezekiel 9:1-7; 10:18-22
Psalm 113:1-2, 3-4, 5-6
Matthew 18:15-20

A reflection on today's Scripture:

Today's Gospel reading is very important to all Christians.

In this reading our Lord outlines the proper course the Christian should take when he or she has a dispute with another Christian. (This teaching was also echoed by St. Paul in his first letter to the Corinthians) So, I ask you to listen to the gospel reading today at Mass, then read it again and reflect on it so that you, too, may learn the truth as to how Christians are to respond to each other when in dispute.

It is important to note that in today's Gospel reading Jesus points out that regardless of what happens to His loved ones He is always with them. As He states, what we bind on earth will be bound in heaven and where two or three are gathered, He is there in their midst. Jesus is always with us, watching us, guiding us and encouraging us on our path to eternal life. And when on that path we come to problems with another, He has guided us to a sound resolution and remains with us for all time.
