“Someone in the crowd said to Jesus, ‘Teacher, tell my brother to share the inheritance with me.’ He replied to him, ‘Friend, who appointed me as your judge and arbitrator?’”
Does Jesus’ reply surprise you?
What is it precisely that surprises you?
Think about that when you are tempted to respond judgmentally to someone.
Heritage word—”. . . if a sign of God’s will is clearly given, as for instance, when people show some spark, some glimmer of good will to listen to us, then these are clear signs that we may act.”
(St. Julie Billiart, Spiritual Mother of the Sisters of Notre Dame)
