Memorial Saint Lucy, virgin and martyr

Ephesians 3:20-21: Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.
  PRAYER FOR THE DAY ...
Infant Jesus, you are the Way, and the Truth, and Life. Let your light shine in our heart and in our mind that we may grow in consider the truth of your word and find joy and liberty in living according to it, Heavenly Father, do in this day what you did in past days. Give us faith to believe and then astonish us at how shortsighted our faith actually was. We ask this, not for ourselves or our status, but for your glory and the salvation of our world. In Infant Jesus' name. Amen.
  Today's Readings ... (December 12, 2011)
Memorial of Saint Lucy, virgin and martyr
First Reading: Zep 3:1-2, 9-13
Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 34:2-3, 6-7, 17-18, 19 and 23
Gospel: Matthew 21:28-32
  Meditation on Today's Gospel: (Matthew 21:28-32)
The Israelites started to enter the assured Land, after their wilderness halt of forty years, they met stiff resistance from the people around them. One of the local rulers in Canaan, employed the services of Balaam, a seer of Baal, to put a curse on the Israelites. Balak wanted to frighten the Israelites away through fear and ill omen. Balaam, however, prophesied blessing and guard to the Israelites rather than cursing and destruction. He gives way to the Spirit of truth rather than to the spirit of dishonesty. He spoke the word of God opposing to the words which King Balak wanted him to speak. Balaam still prophesied that a star would one day proclaim the coming of the Messiah from the house of Jacob. This king would obliterate all the enemies of God's people and establish a kingdom of peace. When we fear the condemnation or rejection of our friends we are tempted to be elusive and to bluff our way to avoid confrontation or problem. Jesus told his disciples that the fact would make them free - free to think and perform according to what they know is right, truthful, and good, rather than yield to dishonesty, lies, and evil.
