A Heart Attuned to Jesus

Do you not yet understand or comprehend? Are your hearts hardened? Do you have eyes and not see, ears and not hear?

 Mark 8 :14-21


February 15, 2011 Bible Reading and Gospel


Taken from my daily emailed gospel reflection by Kerygma Family.

A heart hardens by not becoming what it should be. It hardens when it is isolated from the rest of the living body and kept inside a freezer. It hardens because it dies. It becomes hardened because it has turned exclusively unto itself. A heart hardens even more when it refuses to melt. It hardens when it has become stubborn. I do not like a hardened heart. Do you?
Jesus reprimands His disciples in the Gospel today for the hardness of their hearts. They are witnesses to His miracles. They heard His words. Yet their hearts seem to be impenetrable. Why?  
Fr. Bobby Titco

 Lord, change our stony hearts into hearts of flesh. Touch our hearts always to keep them warm. Grace our hearts so that they may always be what they are supposed to be. Make us love You more and more each day. Help us love one another as You love us. And keep our hearts loving and true. Amen.
