Tuesday of the Thirty-fourth Week in Ordinary Time
St. Cecilia, virgin and martyr (patroness of musicians)
Scripture from today's Liturgy of the Word:
Psalm 96:10, 11-12, 13
A reflection on today's Sacred Scripture:
The readings for today refer to a time of harvest. It is a time that, what was planted either has come to bear fruit, or has faltered. In any case, "it is time!"
We are reminded of this because we too will have a time to be harvested and will be evaluated for our fruitfulness or lack thereof. When that time is, no one but God knows, but surely it has been marked down.
Let us then live purposefully, watering the deeds of goodness that the Lord has planted, and weeding out anything that might interfere.
"Remain faithful until death,
and I will give you the crown of life."
