Memorial of Our Lady of the Rosary (YEAR 2013)

Meditation on Today's Scripture:
True compassion not only identifies and empathizes with the one who is in pain, but takes that pain on oneself in order to bring freedom and restoration. Jesus truly identified with our plight, and he took the burden of our sinful condition upon himself. He showed us the depths of God's love and sympathy, by sharing in our suffering and by offering his life as an atoning sacrifice for our sins upon the cross. His suffering is redemptive because it brings us healing and restoration and the fullness of everlasting life. God offers us true freedom from every form of oppression, sin, and suffering. And that way is through the cross of Jesus Christ. Jesus told a parable to show how wide God's love and mercy is towards every fellow human being. Jesus’ story of a brutal highway robbery was all too recognizable to his audience. The road from Jerusalem to Jericho went through a narrow winding valley surrounded by steep rocky cliffs. Many wealthy Jews from Jerusalem had winter homes in Jericho. This narrow highway was dangerous and notorious for its robbers who could easily ambush their victim and escape into the hills. No one in his right mind would think of traveling through this unsafe highway alone. It was far safer to travel with others for protection and defense. The Levite approached close to the victim, but stopped short of actually helping him. Perhaps he feared that bandits were using a decoy to ambush him. The Levite put personal safety ahead of saving his neighbor.
Word of the Day...
Psalm 63:1O God, you are my God, earnestly I seek you; my soul thirsts for you, my body longs for you, in a dry and weary land where there is no water.
Prayer ...
Holy Father, fill our heart with longing for you and our head with understanding that it is your presence we crave. We confess that we have often sought relief for our hunger in things that do not satisfy. We pledge today to recognize all other sources of satisfaction to be temporary and false. We promise to pursue you and your will through your word and your Spirit till we rest in your presence and grace. In name of Infant Jesus we pray. Amen.
