Weekly Reflection

The people were so astonished that they started asking each other what it all meant.

Mark 1:21-28

In this week's Gospel, Jesus preached in a synagogue and expelled an unclean spirit with authority. The people were astounded and astonished by this man. Who is he?

The people were astonished at Jesus' teaching because it touches them; it made them think, reflect and repent. It is even more crucial, now than ever, to be once again astonished by Jesus' teaching. The Word should stir and touch our hearts. It should penetrate to the deepest core of our beings and force us to re-examine our lives and relationships with God and with others.

Let us pray that we may once again be astonished, amazed and stirred by the teachings of Jesus.
