DAILY BREAD

Tuesday 20 September

Saints Andrew Kim Taegon, Priest, and Paul Chong Hasang, and their Companions, Martyrs
Tuesday of week 25 in Ordinary Time
Gospel – Luke 8:19-21
“…hear the word of God and put it into practice”. It is very easy to hear the Word of God. We all do. But to hear the Word and put it into practice is difficult. To hear and to put it into practice you need love. To just hear, you don’t need a relationship. But to hear and to put it into practice you need a relationship with the person who talks. That’s the difference. We are ready to hear but not ready to practice. We hear and we practice what we want. This will not make us brothers and sisters of Jesus Christ. To have a real relationship with Jesus, we must listen and then we must practice what we have heard from him. Today’s Gospel is asking us: are you listening and putting into practice what you heard? Or are you listening and putting into practice what you want by modifying what you heard? Modifying the Word of God to satisfy my plans and desires destroys everything in our relationship with Jesus.
