The Gospel today quotes Isaiah: “You shall indeed hear but not understand,you shall indeed look but never see. Gross is the heart of this people, they will hardly hear with their ears, they have closed their eyes, lest they see with their eyes and hear with their ears and understand with their hearts and be converted and I heal them.” These are the words Jesus attaches to the disciples. They just don’t get it. The point is this. To hear the Word of God is one thing. To do something about it is another thing. And to integrate it into our lives is yet another. And that’s what we’re called to do.
