From the Word of the Day
“Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. (Matthew 5: 17)
Jesus is not the Lord of ‘rejection’; He does not go against the tradition into which He was born. The Law is holy. He will unveil its authentic meaning. He continues to insist as He did in the Discourse on the Mountain, on the spirituality of daily life. It is today, in the small daily events, in the times in which we work, meet others, make decisions, and dream that our witness is played out. It is precisely the small fidelities that can give birth to our happiness today and in the future. It is by overcoming current social rules, like the justice of the Scribes and Pharisees that we will be allowed to enter into the Kingdom.
In my prayer today I will listen to the radiant suggestion given by Jesus to a sister who asked how to respond more radically to God’s love: “Live the moment and live it in love”.
The Voice of M. Delbrel
The small circumstances of life are of superior fidelity. They never leave us for a moment and the ‘yes’ we must say to them comes one after another.
