Daily Eucharistic Reflections

April 27, 2024

Many today believe what they read online and tell others what they read. But when it comes to God’s word, many do not believe what they read.

Thomas Jefferson cut out parts of the Bible, created his own known as The Jefferson Bible, and reduced it to eighty-six pages.

Today, it is our turn to reject or believe what the Roman Catholic Church has laid out for us in our daily readings. In today’s first reading from the Acts of the Apostles, verse 46 states that the word of God was rejected by some, condemning themselves as unworthy of eternal life. I did not read that on the internet, but I read that in my Bible today. If you read John 3:18, you hear Jesus saying if you believe in him, you are not condemned but already condemned if you do not believe in him.

Never start a sentence with the word and. And where does our faith come from? Read Romans 10:17. Faith comes from what is heard, and what is heard comes through the word of Christ. Please read John 1:1; otherwise, this will not tie together well enough.

Let us listen to Father Eymard’s letter to Ms. Virginie Danion, February 1867. “I advise you to read sacred scripture often, both the Old and New Testaments…we must listen to the word of God in its divine source.”

Let Us Pray:

Dear heavenly Father, please continue to draw our hearts nearer to your heart and give us a passion to read your word daily. In Jesus’ precious name. Amen.
