Yesterday I attended the funeral of a dear friend who attended Catholic Biblical Studies classes with me. She had been too elderly to drive herself, so we often went together. One of her daughters, the eldest, (she had nine children) came up to me after the services and said that her mother had read Scripture to them when they were young, back in the 60's. I had been touched to be asked to read a passage at her wake, because as I read I felt my friend's love of Scripture speaking through me to her now-grown and grieving children. Hearing Scripture read reverently can bring comfort and consolation to our spirits.
Greetings to all who love to wander along the paths of the Holy Scriptures! The purpose of this blog is to share some of the insights of ordinary Catholics who have begun to delve into the mysteries of the Sacred Scriptures. Hopefully you will find these reflections inspiring and insightful. We are faithful to the Church, but we are not theologians; we intend and trust that our individual reflections will remain within the inspired traditions of the Church. (If you note otherwise please let me know!) Discussion and comments are welcome, but always in charity and respect! Come and join us as we ponder the Sacred Scriptures, which will lead us on the path into His heart, which "God alone has traced" Job 28:23.
