JULY 26, 2011

Sir 44:1, 10-15 / Ps 132:11, 13-14, 17-18 / Mt 13:16-17

SIRACH 44:1, 10-15
Let us now glorify illustrious men, the ancestors of our people. But
now consider the godly men whose good deeds have not been forgotten.
Those who came after them benefited from the rich legacy they left;
their race remained faithful to the Covenant, their children followed
their ex ample. Their family will endure forever and never will its
glory be tarnished. Their bodies were buried in peace but their memory
lives through generations. People will speak of their wisdom and the
assembly will celebrate their praise.

MATTHEW 13:16-17
Jesus said to his disciples, "But blessed are your eyes because they
see, and your ears, because they hear. For I tell you that many
prophets and upright people would have longed to see the things you
see, but they did not, and to hear the things you hear, but they did
not hear it."

A lot of times we fail to use our senses properly. Not that we are
physically handicapped or disabled but we are spiritually handicapped.
We can see but we fail to look carefully, we hear but we fail to
listen intently. Our vision is so impaired we miss the good side of
God's creation. We begin to fail listening to Him. Today's Gospel
teaches us to open our senses with our hearts.

Let us change our perspective, form another point of view. Only then
can we appreciate and begin to see that what we have been searching
for all our lives is just in front of us. If only we have eyes and
ears like the Holy Men, then maybe we can have better life and be
better persons for others too. Many times we know that things are
wrong but we do not like to get into trouble. Because generous men
have done good works, they are blessed. Let us be generous persons and
perhaps the world can be a better place to live in.
