Mk 2: 18-22
New wine is for fresh wineskins
Newness of life, mercies that are new every morning, I make all things new. All throughout Holy Scripture, Jesus tells us that he has come to bring new light and hope into the world. But one thing that prevents us from seeing this light and hope are our own hardened and cynical hearts.
Today Jesus reminds us that our hearts must be like new wineskins that are flexible and ready to receive the new wine that God offers us. Lord help us open our hearts to your light and hope!
