Memorial of Saint Peter Claver, Priest (YEAR 2013)

Meditation on Today's Scripture:
The Christians celebrate Sunday as the Lord's Day, why? Most importantly, they celebrate it to commemorate God's work of salvation in Jesus Christ and the new work of creation accomplished through Christ's death and resurrection. God's action is a model for us. If God "rested and was refreshed" on the seventh day, we, too, ought to "rest" and let others, particularly the poor, "be refreshed". Taking "our Sabbath rest" is a way of expressing honor to God for that entire he has done for us. Such "rest" however does not exempt us from our love for our neighbor. How can we make Sunday a day holy to the Lord? First, by refraining from avoidable work and from activities that hinder the worship we owe to God. We can also perform works of mercy, such as humble service of the sick, the infirm, and the elderly. And we ought to seek suitable recreation of mind and body as well. The joy of the Lord's Day is a great gift to refresh and strengthen us in our love of God and of neighbor.
Word of the Day...
Joshua 1:9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.
Prayer ...
Be near, dear Lord, not only in your promise and not only with your presence, but also in our awareness. We need to know you are near when we respond to the incredible opportunities before us. We need to be confident in your help and sustaining love as we face the rigorous challenges in our life. We trust in your unfailing love. In Infant Jesus' name. Amen.

Today's Scripture: Luke 6:6-11
6On another Sabbath, when he entered the synagogue and taught, a man was there whose right hand was withered. 7 And the scribes and the Pharisees watched him, to see whether he would heal on the Sabbath, so that they might find an accusation against him. 8 But he knew their thoughts, and he said to the man who had the withered hand, "Come and stand here." And he rose and stood there. 9 And Jesus said to them, "I ask you, is it lawful on the Sabbath to do good or to do harm, to save life or to destroy it?" 10 And he looked around on them all, and said to him, "Stretch out your hand." And he did so, and his hand was restored. 11 But they were filled with fury and discussed with one another what they might do to Jesus.
