Friday Fourth Week Ordinary Time

Psalm 149:4: For the Lord takes delight in his people; he crowns the humble with salvation.
  PRAYER FOR THE DAY ...
Jesus, thank you for coming to our world and serving us at immense cost and showing us that we can reign with you. We look forward to the day every other knee will join mine as we bow before you as our Lord. Until that day, we pray that you will use us to bless those so frequently forgotten by our busy and glamour-intoxicated world. To our God be glory and praise for sending you, Jesus my Lord. In the holy name of Infant Jesus we offer our praise. Amen.

  Meditation on Today's Gospel: (Mark 6:14-29)
Herod had appreciated and feared John the Baptist as a great prophet and servant of God. John, however did not fear to admonish Herod for his adulterous relationship with his brother's wife. John ended up in prison for the reason of Herodias' jealousy. Herod, out of impulse and a wish to please his family and friends, had John beheaded. When Herod heard the fame of Jesus he thought that John the Baptist, whom he had beheaded, had come back from the dead. Sorry to say that for Herod, he could not rid himself of sin by ridding himself of the man who met him with his sin. He could take a strong stand on the wrong things when he knew the right. Such a stand, though, was a sign of weakness and weakness. The Lord gives grace to the meek, to those who acknowledge their sins and who seek God's mercy and pardon. His grace and pardon not only frees us from an accountable conscience, it enables us to follow holiness in thought and action as well. God's grace enables us to fight fear with faith and to overcome the attraction to compromise goodness and truth with wrongdoing and dishonesty. Do we rely on God's grace and help to choose his way of holiness and to refuse whatever would conciliation our faith and faithfulness to Christ?
