About Today Readings

St John Vianney

Jeremiah 30:1-2, 12-15, 18-22. The Lord will build up Zion again, and appear in all his glory – Psalm 101(102):16-21, 29, 22-23. Matthew 15:1-2, 10-14.

‘Listen and understand’

How many times a day do we make snap judgments of others? Of their actions, opinions or choices, of the way that they might approach or do something in a different way to ourselves.

Is the way that they choose to do something any less valid than our own?

The words ‘listen and understand’ are both powerful and humbling and a challenge to perhaps look deeper to the story of each person.

To take a moment to consider what experiences have helped to shape the words and actions they value. These are the seeds God plants, to be open, to listen and to love our neighbour.
