Take care how you listen

“No one who lights a lamp conceals it with a vessel or sets it under a bed; rather, he places it on a lampstand so that those who enter may see the light. For there is nothing hidden that will not become visible, and nothing secret that will not be known and come to light. Take care, then, how you hear.” (Lk 8: 16-18)

God’s word is for us, for sure, but also for our brothers and sisters. The way we respond to the Word is, therefore, important. Whoever takes care of the word should put it in the proper place in his/her life, use the best time to listen and to prepare himself/herself to receive the most intimate, loving and compassionate message hidden in the word.

“Let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your heavenly Father.” (Gospel Acclamation)
