REFLECTION to help prepare for scripture readings at today’s Mass:
Today takes us back to the Jewish story of Samuel’s call. Samuel’s mother, Hannah had been unable to bear children. At the Shiloh temple she pleaded with the Lord for a child whom she would give back to God in eternal service. And so Samuel was born! (Just before today’s passage) After his birth she presents him to the old priest Eli in the temple and she sings a song to God … a song very similar to the one Mary will sing as she bears Jesus to give him back to the Father! These women (now mothers) trust that God will guide and care for their sons. Eli helps Samuel understand that God reveals his divine voice to the boy and teaches him about the hardships of fidelity to this voice. In John’s gospel the first disciples encounter Jesus while John the Baptist helps them to recognize and follow the Lord’s voice. Paul reminds us that our actual bodies also serve as a conduit of God for we are ALL temples of the Holy Spirit, the Lord living within us. May we be open to those who help us hear and discern the Lord’s voice in in our depths… for in that secret core and holy place, alone with God, his voice will echo in our hearts and guide us through life. May these prophetic men show us how to hear and see our God. May these holy women, Hannah and Mary, show us the sacrifice needed to really say YES to God’s voice.
Please Come to Lower Church after Mass for food & fellowship
