INCREASING OUR COMMON SPACE Instead of imposing our views on others, we must seek to understand each other and see what values we hold in common. The more we recognize what we already have in common, the greater is our unity. Because we are a single human community, we have more in common than what divides us. If we realize that we are united as human beings in many ways, then it is not just easier to accept differences but to also appreciate our diversity. So, how, then, do we increase common space among all peoples?

24 JUNE, 2019, Monday, Birthday of John the Baptist

PLAYING SECOND FIDDLE If only we know God’s will and plan for us, and are able to accept His choice for us, we will always be happy and contented in life. For John the Baptist, he was clear that he was called to be the precursor of our Lord. Happiness in life is not about being at the top or being in second place, but whether we have fulfilled our role in God’s plan of salvation. In other words, have we brought people to Jesus, or to ourselves?

Best Practices for Using the Daily Scripture Reflections
  • Encounter God through the spirit of prayer and the scripture by reflecting and praying the Word of God daily. The purpose is to bring you to prayer, and to a deeper union with the Lord on the level of the heart.
  • Daily reflections when archived will lead many to accumulate all the reflections of the week and pray in one sitting. This will compromise your capacity to enter deeply into the Word of God, as the tendency is to read for knowledge rather than a prayerful reading of the Word for the purpose of developing a personal and affective relationship with the Lord.
  • It is more important to pray deeply, not read widely. The current reflections of the day would be more than sufficient for anyone who wants to pray deeply and be led into an intimacy with the Lord.

Note: You may share this reflection with someone. However, please note that reflections are not archived online, nor will they be available via email request.
