Daily reflection _ teach me your ways

"Blessed are we who fear the Lord, who walk in his ways!"
Deacon John Ruscheinsky
There is a statue of the Sacred Heart of Jesus at the front entrance of our retreat center. Inscribed at the base of this statue is "Discite A ME" which means, Learn from Me. In today's Responsorial Psalm we acclaim: "Blessed are we who fear the Lord, who walk in his ways!" Your ways guide us and teach us to walk in Your path each and everyday. God, you guide us along the way keeping your covenant with us and asking us to keep our covenant with you.
In today's reading from Mark a scribe asked Jesus as to which is the first of all the commandments. We who have heard - about the two great commandments all our lives, could have answered the seeking scribe. But how seriously have we taken those commandments to heart? We need to be faithful to Jesus Christ, to be willing to give our whole life to Him. We know that we will find Jesus today in everyone we meet, especially the most vulnerable. If we are willing to sacrifice our time and resources for their welfare? Are we truly willing to love God with all our heart and soul, mind and strength and our neighbor as ourselves? How can we say we love God if we do not love those around us?
Our challenge with all of this is to live out the Corporal Works of Mercy:
         Feed the hungry
         Give drink to the thirsty
         Clothe the naked
         Shelter the homeless
         Visit the sick
         Visit the imprisoned
          Bury the dead
        "Discite A ME"
