RECEIVING FORGIVENESS AND HEALING We are sinners and in need of forgiveness and healing. None of us can say that we have not hurt others or broken any of the commandments of God. Healing comes through forgiveness, received and given. What we all need most is forgiveness. However, not many people seek healing although they know they are wounded. What are the obstacles to people availing themselves of healing through forgiveness? How do we prepare for a good confession?

A PASCHAL FAITH ENABLES US TO CATCH A GLIMPSE OF THE RESURRECTION Life is full of ambiguities and paradoxes. How are we to live our life in the face of so many dilemmas without feeling discouraged or complacent? Today, we are invited to walk by faith. Only a paschal faith, a faith that continues to proclaim the glory of God amidst life’s challenges, will enable us to catch a glimpse of the resurrection. How then can we cultivate this paschal faith so that we can go through life bearing our cross and sufferings cheerfully and with certain hope that we will be victorious in the final outcome?

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.
