‘Let Us Be Inquiring Disciples’

Lent 2014: Readings from Augustine

When the disciples inquire and Jesus their master replies to them, it’s as if we too are learning with them when we hear or read the holy Gospel. ... Let us with them be inquiring disciples, and let us also listen to our common master ... so that it’s not only they who then heard him speak but we, too, who can learn this from his Gospel.  (In Ioannem Tr. 76, 1, 2; PL 35, 1831)

Good thought to keep in mind. Our study group has been considering a quotation from the Fathers and one from a more recent source each week in relation to the reading we are doing. This comment would certainly apply in many ways to the subject matter of our next meeting this Spring,  Matthew 24 : 1-51. Thanks!
