31 Jan GC XXI. TRIDUUM II: A HEART WITHOUT BORDERS
This morning’s prayer placed us in the heart of Love: the Heart of the Father. Through Jesus we know this heart and its preferences. Jesus tells us that his Father has revealed himself to the little ones (Mt 11:47). The wisdom of the Kingdom is not reached by the powerful and wise of this world, satisfied in their security, but is revealed to the little ones, to those who know they are in need and await the Kingdom.
God makes himself known to us as Creator and Lord, but also as guardian of the fragile and vulnerable, friend of the small. With his gaze He reveals to us the value of what is simple and authentic. This Father-Mother God invites us to see as He sees, beyond appearances.
In the afternoon, the prayer led us by the hand of a foreign woman (Mk 7:24-30), who surprisingly ends up evangelizing Jesus. The determination of this woman, moved by the pain of her daughter, is going to shake the vision of Jesus. She manages to cause the borders of Israel to overflow. Jesus listens to the voice of the Father in this woman and opens himself to the universality of salvation.
Inside, we are feeling how God is making his way in us, preparing us to live this congregation as an exercise of listening and openness, as an opportunity for change, for conversion to the ever-greater God.
