“No disciple is superior to the teacher; but when fully trained, every disciple will be like his teacher.” (LK 6: 40)
We are reading everything using our own “filters,” received through our experiences and our lives. When I read today’s Gospel I see “fully trained”—a very positive message, because I want to be “like my teacher.” And this text gives me hope: “when fully trained, every disciple will be like his teacher.” Every, not only chosen, or very special or talented—every; what we need is only training. Yesterday we received basic steps to practice. And we know this from our lives: practice makes progress, and progress brings us closer to “fully trained.” Good News!
“Your word, O Lord, is truth; consecrate us in the truth.” (Gospel Acclamation)
