We might not weep when the Word of God is read to us during mass or when we delve into the Bible at home, but the Scriptures should affect us in some way. They should inspire us to become better people. They should give us strength to carry our burdens. They should bring us happiness and joy. They should give us the light of hope in our hours of darkness. They should remind us of how much we are loved by God and how much He has to say to us every day… if only we would listen.
Are we listening to the Word of God? How can we be more faithful messengers of the Good News? What can we do to carry forth the love of God as expressed within the Scriptures?
O Lord, make us living fonts of your word.
