Introduction to the Readings this weekend
The promise of new life is accompanied by the promise that the people of God will be settled on their own soil. God’s blessings are not vague or theoretical: he wants us to live contented, meaningful life in our concrete circumstances.
Fundamentally, to be’ interested only in unspiritual things’ means to live as though God did not exist. It is a practical form of atheism, which we must all guard against.
Jesus loved Martha, Mary and Lazarus, but when he heard the news of Lazarus’ illness, he stayed where he was for two more days. Jesus’ wisdom-and his itinerary-transcend even the most urgent and pressing of human appeals, and yet his love finally embraces every situation.
