“Jesus began speaking in the synagogue, saying: ‘Today this Scripture passage is fulfilled in your hearing.’”
- Imagine yourself in church anticipating Jesus’ message, and this is what you hear.
- Might you “perk up your ears” at His words?
- How do you see any words of the Scriptures being fulfilled in our day—in the good one person is doing for another, in someone helping you with your inner turmoil, in another person smiling at you in the store, in someone whose presence exudes peace, in someone tending to the ill, lonely or incarcerated?
Heritage word—“In living the Eucharist we incarnate the love of our good and provident God in authentic concrete ways.”
(Sister Mary Kristin, 10thSuperior General of the Sisters of Notre Dame)
