Amazon Synod – Listening Like Mary


iu-3

Blessed are those who hear the word of God
and observe it.

A Synod is simply dialogue my friends. It does not mean EVERYTHING will be implemented. When we talk as friends, we discuss everything, no? This is how a relationship is built. That does not mean we do everything. It is how we hear one another and see what our friend needs are.  It means, we talk about everything and with the teaching authority, do what we believe. Live the faith and preach the gospel. That is all. It is sad to see so many jumping to conclusions through the illusions of false notions.

Today’s Gospel:

Martha, Martha, you are anxious and worried about many things. There is need of only one thing. Mary has chosen the better part and it will not be taken from her.

If you are anxious, or fearful, add more “Mary” to your life, meaning, pray more and sit at  the feet of our Lord, bringing with you all that frightens you. Empty yourself of all that is not His, and allow Him to fill you with all that is Him. Peace Be not afraid.

Pray without jumping to conclusions and falling for the illusions produced through lack of faith in our Lord. The illusions of “what if” are drawn through placing our faith in ourselves and grow huge in a society that refuses to sit and listen to our Lord, choosing to run around and do things, sharing false notions, rumors, etc, one may think is more important. This causes irrational fear and it takes away from our Lord where our fear should actually be, alone in Him (Fear of the Lord).  Make yourself busy in Him. 

My prayer today is for all to spend more time sitting at the feet of our Lord, instead of the world, hanging on His every word without fretting, and putting them into action, so to be both Mary and Martha, at His promptings. If today you hear His voice, harden not your hearts.
