Homilies/Reflections

We must sit at the feet of the Lord
By REV. FR. SAMUEL FREDERICK

Gal. 1:13-24, Lk. 10:38-42. Today's first reading describes the authority of Paul as coming from Christ. Though, Paul started as a strict and zealous Jew as anybody else but at his conversion, the Lord appeared to him and conferred on him the divine authority. He had met Jesus and knew Him and like Prophet Jeremiah, God chose him for a special mission. Thus, Paul emphasises the independence of his mission from human source. Since his mission was not of human, he went about his duty prayerfully. This is to teach us that as we go about the 'work of the Lord', we must not forget the 'Lord of the work'.

Like Martha in today's Gospel, many of us are so busy that we neglect the company of Jesus. Martha was caught up in what she was doing that she forgot the Guest. Though, we need to work, earn our living and live life to the full but we need to be aware like Mary that when we are in the presence of God, we are to listen to Him. It is the feature of a good disciple to sit at the feet of the master and listen. Mary is praised today because she is a model of a good disciple; she chose to be at the feet of Jesus.

May the Lord be for us a refuge and strength and by His grace grant us the courage to remain with Christ amidst the distractions of this world! Amen!! Good morning, do have a great day!!!
