Lectio: Tuesday, Twenty-Second Week in Ordinary Time
September 05, 2017
Readings of the day: RB Prol. 33-38; 1 Thess. 5:1-6,9-11; Luke 4:31-37
In today’s Gospel those who heard Jesus were astonished at HIS teaching—HE spoke with authority. Their question: “What is there about
HIS WORD? Saint Benedict reminds us of our Lord’s teaching: “Whoever hears these WORDS of mine and carries them out is wise. These are the ones who build their house upon a ROCK.”
Our questions: How am I responding to the WORD, in word and deed? Upon whose ROCK am I standing?
Please God, may we encourage one another and build one another up.
