Serving the Word: 12nd November


Luke 17, 20-25:
“The kingdom of God will not come in a spectacular way… The Kingdom of God is within you”.

It is only seen well with the heart. “The essential is invisible to the eyes”.
With the heart a mother sees the heart of her child.
With the heart, those in love see the heart that makes them fall in love.
With the heart a friend sees the heart of their friend.
The Kingdom of God, like all that is essential and important, begins and is in the heart of each person. The Kingdom of God is in your heart.
When you pray the Lord’s Prayer today and say “thy kingdom come”, look at your heart and examine what is in it.
To the extent that it is full of love, of gratuity, of forgiveness, of joy, of generosity, of gratitude, of enthusiasm… the Kingdom of God will be within you.
No fireworks, no big shows, no amazing things.
The Kingdom of God will be in your heart to the extent that your heart is filled with the Gospel.
And also from your heart it will spread and propagate throughout the world.
May you spread the fire of the Kingdom of God very much today.
Good day.

Antonio Maria Sanjuan Marin, cmf
