Reading I: Colossians 1:15-20
Responsorial: Psalms 100:1b-2, 3, 4, 5
Gospel: Luke 5:33-39
Reflecting on this passage, we should take care to keep our heart filled with joy regardless of the task at hand - to not let ourselves be caught in the trap of tradition being done for the sake of tradition and forgetting the intent behind the action. As said elsewhere, if we fast, no one should be able to see that we are fasting - we should put clean clothes and wash our face.
We should strive to have all our actions performed from the basis of love - happy and joyous as the disciples!
