“But they did not understand this saying; its meaning was hidden from them so that they should not understand it, and they were afraid to ask him about this saying.” (Lk 9: 45)
This happens also to us: “they did not understand”, “its meaning was hidden from them.” Fortunately, we can use Our Lady’s strategy—“And Mary kept all these things, reflecting on them in her heart.” (Lk 2: 19) His every word is dictated by love, so heart is the best place to put Our Lord’s words. “Understanding its meaning” will come, for sure. We are His children, and He will give us everything we need to grow.
“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, for he has anointed me and sent me to preach the good news to the poor, to heal the broken hearted.” (Entrance Antiphon)
