Rise up, be off…

“Rise up, be off to the potter’s house; there I will give you my message.” (JER 18: 2) 

Another translations says—“there you will hear my word.” His word is his message, and there is no place where we can’t receive it. It could be at “the potter’s house” or it could be at John Smith’s house; it could be at my work or in any of our houses–not just in the Church. The only thing to do is—“rise up, be off.” Action and contemplation are needed to “open our hearts, to listen to the words” of the Lord.

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