My home

October 9, 2015 6:00 am

“When an unclean spirit goes out of someone, it roams through arid regions searching for rest but, finding none, it says, ‘I shall return to my home from which I came.’” (LK 11: 24)

It is absolutely bad news, if an “unclean spirit” can call somebody’s heart (his or her interior) “my home.” There is only one Lord, one Creator, and One God who can be in our hearts, who should be invited to stay with us like at home. A mortal sin is like giving the devil ourselves as a home. So we should ask everyday—“open our hearts, O Lord,” and make ourselves Your home.

“Open our hearts, O Lord, to listen to the words of your Son.” (Gospel Acclamation)
