My Reflection for Thursday October 17, Saint Ignatius of Antioch, Bishop and Martyr, Luke 11:47-54

Gospel: Luke 11:47-54
The Lord said: “Woe to you who build the memorials of the prophets whom your fathers killed. Consequently, you bear witness and give consent to the deeds of your ancestors, for they killed them and you do the building. Therefore, the wisdom of God said, ‘I will send to them prophets and Apostles; some of them they will kill and persecute in order that this generation might be charged with the blood of all the prophets shed since the foundation of the world, from the blood of Abel to the blood of Zechariah who died between the altar and the temple building.

Yes, I tell you, this generation will be charged with their blood! Woe to you, scholars of the law! You have taken away the key of knowledge. You yourselves did not enter and you stopped those trying to enter. When Jesus left, the scribes and Pharisees began to act with hostility toward him and to interrogate him about many things, for they were plotting to catch him at something he might say.

My Reflection:
Who are the modern day prophets that we encounter today? It’s anyone who meaningfully speaks about God and anyone who has so much concern for our welfare that they would always want us to have a strong faith in God.

But we normally don’t listen to them most of the time we instead listen to the fleeting dictates of this world. There are even times that we label them as people who are out of this world. Until we encounter problems and trials because we did not listen to the meaningful advice of these modern day prophet in our lives.

Next time when we are given meaningful advice about God and life let us listen. For they did not do it on their own accord, they were sent by God to us for a very meaningful reason. No other than to bring us closer to Him and to make us God loving people of God.

Do you usually listen to the voice of God coursed through other people?
