About Today Readings

St Callistus I

Joel 4:12-21. Let the just rejoice in the Lord – Psalm 96(97):1-2, 5-6, 11-12. Luke 11:27-28.

More blessed still are those who hear the word of God and keep it

The woman who called out had been moved by Jesus’ words and wanted to praise him. People can sometimes misunderstand his response. This is one way to interpret it – it is not important who we are or where we have come from. But it is important that we hear the word of God and keep it. We remember Jesus’ promise to his disciples – no need to be afraid. He would send an Advocate, who would teach them all they needed to know.

Let us take these words of Jesus into our hearts. We have the Spirit here within us. Let us live this day energised by the Spirit of God’s love.
