My Reflection for Saturday October 12, Our Lady of the Pillar Twenty-seventh Week in Ordinary Time, Luke 11:27-28

Gospel: Luke 11:27-28
While Jesus was speaking, a woman from the crowd called out and said to him, “Blessed is the womb that carried you and the breasts at which you nursed. He replied, “Rather, blessed are those who hear the word of God and observe it.”

My Reflection:
How can we hear the word of God? Does He speak to us? Of course, through our solemn  prayers God speaks to us, though reading of the scriptures God speaks to us. Through a hungry and spiritually deprived person God speaks to us.

What would we do after hearing God speak to us? Then we must act, we must learn to translate our conversation with God though our concrete acts of faith. Many of us sometimes forget to have a prayerful life with Jesus. Sad to say but we often spend more time with the internet or in front of our high definition television rather than listen to God. This is the reality; we lack time for God that’s why we have so many worries.

But the moment we learn to hear or listen more and translate it to acts of faith. We start to have a more peaceful life, yes there would still be problems but we will be able to pull through it. For the reason that we now have that deeper intimacy with our God. Facilitated by our frequent listening of His words.  

If we can make time for our many earthly undertakings, why can’t we create time to listen to God? We gain more wisdom when we start to listen. And we allow ourselves to be God’s ambassadors of goodwill when we translate that listening to factual acts of faith.

Have time to hear God and you will begin to become deaf to the worries of this world. …
