Setting Your Mind on Things Above: Scripture

During Week 17, we studied how scripture can bring us closer to God.  Until recently, scripture was not part of my routine.  However, in the last several years, I began to appreciate the richness that scripture study and meditation can add to a prayer life.  Most of my routine focuses on the scripture readings at Daily Mass, which cover most of the books of the Hebrew Bible and New Testament over a two year period.  The daily readings are wonderfully put together and tell a beautiful story of how God has communicated with humans over the last 3,000 years.

Here are some Jesuit resources to daily scripture study and prayer (I went to a Jesuit college and love their spirituality):

Creighton’s Daily Reflections

Living Space (Daily Scripture Commentaries by Irish Jesuits)

Sacred Space (Daily Prayers by Irish Jesuits)

I would love to hear good resources from anyone else.  Please post them in the Comment section below.
