THE VERY HEART OF JESUS TEACHING
We do not have to wish that we could have lived at the time of our Lord. The truth is that He is living among us right now.  
Deacon John Ruscheinsky
 
It must have been a wonderful thing to have lived with Jesus when he was on this earth. What a great privilege it was for Peter, James, John and the others to have known our Lord personally and intimately. We naturally wish that we could have lived with Jesus, and I think we feel that we would have been completely devoted to Him.
 
As a matter of fact many people who lived with Jesus either did not recognize Him or failed to respond to Him. And today it may be that we ourselves sometimes do not recognize Jesus or fail to respond as well. We do not have to wish that we could have lived at the time of our Lord. The truth is that He is living among us right now. He is present in this world not only in the Eucharist but also in the people with whom we live. He is all around us.
 
In the First Reading today we heard many practical directives for the dealing with people, all of which are summed up in the one command, "you shall love your neighbor as yourself."
 
Points to Pray and Ponder. Throughout Lent we pray to God at Mass, and this is necessary always. At the end of Mass you hear these words, "Go in peace, glorifying the Lord, by your life."  Indeed, we will fulfill these words if we go forth to serve others for the love of God.
