Be More Responsive

12 July 2011

Today’s Readings: Ex 2:1-15a / Mt 11:20-24

REFLECTION
Jesus chides the people where he lived during his ministry. Though they hear him proclaim the good news of salvation, they have neither repented nor accepted him as the messiah. Jesus warns the residents of the prosperous city of Babylon, for they think they deserve rewards from God.

In today’s Gospel Jesus forewarns the people where he performed many miracles. He points out that the places of wealth and power would have repented long ago had they seen his works. On the day of judgment, greater will be shown to those living in foreign cities. Jesus’ words express sorrow rather than anger for the hardhearted people.

Like the people in Jesus’ time, we have heard God’s word and have been favored with countless blessings. We are called to be more responsive to God’s magnanimity.

PRAYER
Loving Father, keep the fire of your love burning in our life. Make us more responsive to your generosity as we deal with our brothers and sisters.

In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.

Who We Are

Communication Foundation for Asia is a pioneer in development communication. It was established in 1968 as a non-stock, non-profit organization, but its origins go way back to 1960, when the Social Communications Center was born with the publication of the Philippine Catholic Digest. Both organizations were founded by the Dutch missionary, Fr Cornelio Lagerwey, MSC, in collaboration with his mission partner Genaro V. Ong.
