To hear the word of the Lord

May 2, 2015 7:00 am

“On the following sabbath almost the whole city gathered to hear the word of the Lord.” (ACTS 13: 44)

Probably this is the best activity we can do on the “sabbath”: “to hear the word of the Lord.” He brings with every word the unconditional love of the Father to everyone. How different our world would look if “almost the whole city” could gather to hear. When we give a priority to “hear the word of the Lord,” there is less room for the evil patterns of our internal dialog. The more we listen to Him, the less we focus on us; the less we focus on ourselves, the more we listen to and respect others.

“If you remain in my word, you will truly be my disciples, and you will know the truth, says the Lord.” (Gospel Acclamation)
