Gospel: Luke 9:43b–45
"But they did not understand this saying." (cf. Luke 9:45)
Today’s Gospel presents to us the second time that Jesus foretells His passion, death and resurrection. As the disciples did not understand the words of Jesus about His cross, they also had a hard time understanding that the Messiah would become a servant of his brothers.
Sometimes we are like the disciples having a hard time in understanding the word of God but let these times be the moments of opening ourselves and trusting more to Jesus.
Let us ask Mother Mary to teach us to be open and trusting to Jesus with the things that we don't understand. Amen
