What to do

We “vent”.

We do our thing.

Today’s readings invite us to do something different.

Something better.

Today’s readings invite us to receive.

In the first reading (Acts 13:13-25) the leaders of a synagogue are eager to receive what Saint Paul has to say.

In the Gospel (John 13:13-20), our Lord says this:

Amen, amen, I say to you,
whoever receives the one I send
receives me,
and whoever receives me
receives the one who sent me.

May we always be ready to receive from Christ.
