Fr Greg points out that Jesus challenges us to keep our hearts open, as He did, in spite of rejection, criticism and even betrayal. Using our hands and hearts to reach out to others we can create, Pope Francis says, a revolution of tenderness one person at a time.
Thus says the LORD: This is what I commanded my people: Listen to my voice … But they obeyed not, nor did they pay heed. They walked in the hardness of their evil hearts.
Oh, that today you would hear [God’s] voice: “Harden not your hearts.”
PS 95:1-2, 6-7, 8-9
“Every kingdom divided against itself will be laid waste and house will fall against house.”
