Reflections of Faith
Read and be inspired by a reflection based on today's Gospel made by members of the Verbum Dei Family in Manila.
October 13, 2018 – Saturday
Lk 11: 27-28
Be open and hear the Word
Most of us receive life advices from our family, friends or workmates. We hear it loudly or maybe blindly. We have an option to follow it or not.
Our gospel today speaks about hearing the word of God in a different way. Jesus invites us to observe and apply His words in our life. Unlike some life advices that we don’t like hearing, Jesus words are an exemption. His words want to touch our hearts even if we don’t like it. We are invited to open ourselves and hear His word.
Let us ask for Mother Mary’s openness of heart to observe and apply whatever we receive from God’s word today.
