READINGS for 2006-08-08
When I summon him, he shall approach me; how else should one take the deadly risk of approaching me? says the Lord. ? Jeremiah 30:21
The layout of the temple of Jerusalem had three main parts: the courts, the Holy Place and the Holy of Holies. In the Holy Place, only priests were allowed to enter. A thick and heavy curtain separated it from the Holy of Holies, the innermost sanctuary where the Ark of the Covenant was. The presence of God resided in it, and was accessible only to the high priest. He could only enter once a year to atone for the sins of the nation.
Thank You, Jesus, for being my High Priest and for making a way for me to the Father.

Psalm 102:16-18, 19-21, 29 and 22-23
15  The nations shall revere your name, O LORD, and all the kings of the earth your glory, 16  when the LORD has rebuilt Zion and appeared in his glory; 17  when he has regarded the prayer of the destitute, and not despised their prayer. (R) 18  Let this be written for the generation to come, and let his future creatures praise the LORD 19  ?The LORD looked down from his holy height, from heaven he beheld the earth, 20  To hear the groaning of the prisoners, to release those doomed to die? (R) 28  The children of your servants shall abide, and their posterity shall continue in your presence. 21  That the name of the LORD may be declared in Zion; and his praise, in Jerusalem, 22  When the peoples gather together, and the kingdoms, to serve the LORD. (R)
Jesus chastises Peter for his lack of faith and then calms the wind and the seas. There can be little doubt in the minds of the apostles after such an event that Jesus is an extraordinary individual and hence their acclamation that He is the Son of God. Let us pray that we will have the presence of mind to draw upon our faith in times of struggle and fear. Let us not lose sight that He is with us in order to lead and guide us through the maze of life to eternal salvation in the end.

READ THE BIBLE IN ONE YEAR Jeremiah 10-13
LET THERE BE LIGHT!
The years 1200 through 1500 are commonly referred to as the ?Middle Ages? or ?The Dark Ages.? It is considered a bleak time because it was an era of wars, diseases, sufferings and immense human poverty. Islam was also the encroaching communism of that day. Sad to say, corruption pervaded even in church circles and reformation within her was badly needed. This led to Martin Luther?s protest and the birth of Protestantism.
Jesus, Light of the world, shine in me, shine through me. Let all the light in me be Yours. Dispel the darkness in my soul and with my soul dispel the darkness of the world. Amen.
St. Dominic Guzman, confessor, pray for us.
