In today's reading, Lawyers are depicted as taking away the "key of the knowledge. You have not gone in yourselves, and have prevented others going in who wanted to." Again, this hits home - for in the "word-smithing" done today the essence of life is set aside, forgotten. Yesterday I read "safe abortions saves lives"...my jaw dropped open...the media and lawyers manipulate words and the average person accepts it...thus as Jesus stated, preventing us from gaining the key of knowledge.
Let us pray to the Holy Spirit today to open our eyes and our intellect to give us the grace to gain the "key of the knowledge" to not only see where we have been evading the Truth ... but illumine our inmost heart and help us make that effort to change our lives to follow Jesus with a fresh, open heart, mind and soul.
