Be the living expression of God’s kindness: kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile - Daily Bible Reflections April 14,2014


HOLY MONDAY
 
IN DEED
 
“He will not cry out, nor shout, nor make his voice heard in the street.” – Isaiah 42:2
 
       A Korean family that lived in the Philippines for a couple of years had themselves baptized as Catholics. Asked by the priest why they wanted to convert to Catholicism, the wife said it was because they admired the Filipino family who were their neighbors. This family showed them little acts of kindness during their stay in the country, like bringing over some food to share, acknowledging their presence with a warm smile, getting to know them through casual conversations across their fences, and the friendly Filipino children inviting their kids over to play.
       The Korean family didn’t know what Catholicism was about, but those acts of kindness were enough to make them believe that the God their neighbors worshipped was a good God.
       We don’t have to be skilled preachers of the Word to be called good servants of God. We need not “cry out, nor shout, nor make [our voices] heard in the street.” We preach simply by the way we live. Of this we have long been told, and it’s good to be reminded again and again.

Reflection: “Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be the living expression of God’s kindness: kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile.” (Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta)
 
Lord, make me a servant today and every day.
 
Blessed Peter Gonzalez, pray for us.
