Reflection on Luke 10:13-16 ~
I have “been there and done that” through my own woes, but I prefer to not dwell on them. I feel they are in the past, forgiven, and I would rather spend my time giving others a glimpse of the dimly light view of heaven that I have “seen” and understood. Isn’t that what Jesus is asking from any Christian? Jesus wants you and I, despite being in the midst of “Chroazin” to live the Word and Eucharist as if we want our ultimate destination of heaven unimaginably greater than what we have already tasted.
Luke 10 New Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition (NRSVCE)
Woes to Unrepentant Cities
13 “Woe to you, Chorazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! For if the deeds of power done in you had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago, sitting in sackcloth and ashes. 14 But at the judgment it will be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon than for you. 15 And you, Capernaum,
will you be exalted to heaven?
No, you will be brought down to Hades.
16 “Whoever listens to you listens to me, and whoever rejects you rejects me, and whoever rejects me rejects the one who sent me.”
Thank you for meditating on this Gospel reading and considering this reflection on Luke 10:13-16.
