Daily Meditation

November 7:

One of things we are learning about our Pauline life is the practice of daily meditation on Scripture. When you love someone, you make every effort to spend time with the person to get to know him or her. To know Jesus better, we cultivate the habit of spending time with Him through Sacred Scripture. Our meditation is usually on the Gospel reading for the Mass of the day. We listen to Jesus speaking in the silence of our hearts. As we spend this half hour of prayer and reflection with the Word, He reveals to us who He is and how we can be like Him. As He said, “Blessed are they who hear the word of God and observe it” (Luke 11:28). Daily meditation slowly transforms us so that we can think, speak and live like Jesus. What kinds of things are you doing to know Jesus more deeply in your life?
