Food Court

It's a popular term in United States, I guess, as everywhere I went so far, there never is a food court too far to not stumble upon it. People seem to live in the fast lane, so this type of fast lane food outlets comes pretty handy. Foodstuffs displayed all over the place and it's up to the patron to choose what she or he desires to have ...

Yet there is a first class food court with fantastic variety of nutritious, organic, healthy foodstuffs, ready for each one of us, every day, spread generously across the table of the Liturgy of the Word in daily Mass. Everyday. Every morning. Always.

You don't have to rush to the church daily to participate in the goodies prepared thoughtfully by a Master Dietician for our health and well being. What you need is either internet access to websites offering daily Mass readings or having a Holy Scriptures (The Bible) and a liturgical calendar (there is such an immense variety of these publications, giving you abbreviations of daily readings)...

The First Reading, the Responsorial Psalm, (on Sunday and Solemnities there is the Second Reading also), the Gospel Acclamation, the Gospel. Each passage rich in nutrients, whole grain Word of God and delicious bite size dishes - for you to pick up and fortify your soul and conscience.

As I await my morning coffee brewing patiently in the percolator, I go through today's readings and as always find them astonishingly rich in meaning and diverse layers of different messages valid for myself for today and for those who I care for and love and serve...

Whoever has ears ought to hear what the Spirit says to the churches.
