Daily Word Of God

Luke 9:43b-45

At a time when everyone was full of admiration for all he did, Jesus said to his disciples, ‘For your part, you must have these words constantly in your mind: The Son of man is going to be handed over into the power of men.’ But they did not understand him when he said this; it was hidden from them so that they should not see the meaning of it, and they were afraid to ask him about what he had just said.

Today's Pointers on God's Word

As you read the passage what words, phases or meanings caught your attention?

  • Jesus reminded His disciples to keep in mind that the Son of man must suffer and die and then raised from death three days later.


  • This Truth was hard for the disciples to understand; more so to accept, especially when things were going well for Jesus. Likewise, for us too, do we not tend to “limit” God’s powers and Love for us through our narrow perceptions of Him?


  • Today’s Gospel passage invites us to invoke the Holy Spirit when we are confronted with aspects of our Faith that we cannot understand.
