They were utterly amazed at him

“‘Whose image and inscription is this?’ They replied to him, ‘Caesar’s.’ So Jesus said to them, ‘Repay to Caesar what belongs to Caesar and to God what belongs to God.’ They were utterly amazed at him.” (MK 12: 16-17)

At the beginning was a plan to “to ensnare him in his speech,” and they got trapped into their own trap. Fortunately, they found Our Lord’s answer remarkable, and they were “amazed at him.” This should be our daily reaction to His word–He is the Word.

“May the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ enlighten the eyes of our hearts, that we may know what is the hope that belongs to his call.” (Gospel Acclamation)
