St Thomas Aquinas

Today is Tuesday the 28 January, the Memorial of St Thomas Aquinas, in the Third Week of Ordinary Time.

Salt of the Sound sings, ‘Find rest’.

Today’s reading is from the Gospel of Mark.

Why do you think it was that the “mother and brothers of Jesus” sent for him and were calling him?  Why were they trying to speak to him?

Look at Jesus’s response.  Imagine that you’re one of the crowd. What does it feel like?

Now imagine that you’re Jesus’s mother, or one of his brothers?  How do you feel now? 

Listen to the passage again.  Is there one phrase in the text that sums it all up for you?  What is that phrase?

Finally, bring together all the thoughts and feelings that this passage has aroused in you, and make them into a prayer, and address that prayer to God, your Heavenly Father.
