JUNE 4, 2010

You, though, have followed my teaching, my way of life, my aims, my
faith, my patience and my love, my perseverance and the persecutions
and sufferings that came to me in places like Antioch, Iconium and
Lystra -- all the persecutions I have endured; and the Lord has
rescued me from every one of them. But anybody who tries to live in
devotion to Christ is certain to be persecuted; while these wicked
impostors will go from bad to worse, deceiving others, and themselves
deceived. You must keep to what you have been taught and know to be
true; remember who your teachers were, and how, ever since you were a
child, you have known the holy scriptures -from these you can learn
the wisdom that leads to salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. All
scripture is inspired by God and useful for refuting error, for
guiding people's lives and teaching them to be upright. This is how
someone who is dedicated to God becomes fully equipped and ready for
any good work.

MARK 12:35-37
While teaching in the Temple, Jesus said, 'How can the scribes
maintain that the Christ is the son of David? David himself, moved by
the Holy Spirit, said: The Lord declared to my Lord, take your seat at
my right hand till I have made your enemies your footstool. David
himself calls him Lord; in what way then can he be his son?' And the
great crowd listened to him with delight.

The Messiah is the Son of God. As God-Man, Jesus was born of the
lineage of David. The Jews knew that the Messiah would come from the
line of David and expected an earthly king. They wanted him to fit
their lifestyle and their expectations. It was hard for them to
believe and accept that the Messiah was also the Lord of David. They
rejected him and put him to death. They deny that the Son of God has
risen to save us. (Until now, the Jews are still awaiting the coming
of the Messiah.)

Many times, we profess our faith and say that we believe in Jesus
Christ, the Messiah and Son of God. However, our faith is not seen in
our way of life. Often in our words and deeds, we relegate the Lord
God to the side and we make our own plans and actions the priority. We
make our activities and work the center of our lives. We become bound
to all earthly things and forget our purpose in life. We become
attached to our material world and make it our god. Do we make our own
the options of Jesus, our Lord? Are we cognizant of God's desires for

Let us pray for the grace to recognize God's plan for each one of us.
May our heart's desire be directed entirely toward the Father through
the intercession of Jesus, His Son and the inspiration of the Holy
