PARTICIPATING IN THE KINGDOM LIFE REQUIRES THE CAPACITY TO FORGIVE Forgiveness presupposes we have seen and heard God's forgiveness. Unless we are conscious of the forgiveness we have received from the Lord, we cannot forgive. Unless we have reflected and felt God's forgiveness in our lives, the capacity to forgive would be limited. The mercy and forgiveness of God is unlimited. We who receive that forgiveness and live that forgiveness in our lives will share the heart of God and thus become members of the kingdom.

15 AUGUST, 2018, Wednesday, The Assumption of the B.V. Mary

ASSUMPTION IN THE LIGHT OF CHRIST’S RESURRECTION AND ASCENSION Our celebration of Mary's assumption is more than just saying that her body is glorified. We are saying that she is now filled with the glory of God and shares the life of God intensely. Mary's assumption also means that beyond her union with God in body and soul, she is so filled with God's life and love that she continues to exercise her maternal love for the Church through the power of intercession.

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.
