Lk 17: 20-25
“The Kingdom of God is among you”
When Jesus tells “The Kingdom of God is among you” it means so much. We expect the Kingdom of God to be perfect, full of love, no sadness, no pain, etc. Each one of us has the Kingdom of God in our hearts – God’s presence in our lives. For this we are capable of bringing the goodness and love to others. We are capable to bring joy, consolation, hope and love to others.
Our world of today has difficulty to realize that the Kingdom of God is among us, Jesus has come already and He is within us. Why many people are hopeless and unbelieving? Why many feel that there’s a big hole in their lives and even many think that love doesn’t exist? We are called to bring the good news that God is already in our midst, we are to share his living presence to everyone.
Mama Mary, guide us as we announce the good news of the Kingdom of God to others, as you first received it and shared it to all through your life as a constant Magnifcat.
