People were hanging on his words

November 21, 2014 8:31 am

“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)

Some of the people “were hanging on his words” and some “were seeking to put him death”—this situation reflects the complicated nature of human beings. On one side stand “the leaders of the people”  and on the other side stand “all the people.” When we forget to hang on Our Lord’s words, we are in danger.

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