Hanging on his words

November 23, 2018 6:00 am

“And every day he was teaching in the temple area. The chief priests, the scribes, and the leaders of the people, meanwhile, were seeking to put him to death, but they could find no way to accomplish their purpose because all the people were hanging on his words.” (LK 19: 47-48)

Our Lord was teaching every day in the temple area, and “all the people were hanging on his words.” Today, we can be in our homes, on our trips or coming back home from work, and we can be “hanging on his words.” This is not about places, like “the temple area,” it is about Him and our relationship with Him.

“My sheep hear my voice, says the Lord; I know them, and they follow me.” (Gospel Acclamation)
