Our posture is often a tip-off to our hospitality and reverence for the Lord. Note
the actions of Abraham as he greeted the Lord in the presence of three men
who appeared near his tent. He ran from the entrance of the tent to greet them.
He bowed to the ground as he met them. He and Sarah, his wife, hastened to
prepare a meal and bring food and water to their guests.
In the Gospel story, Jesus’ friend Mary sat at his feet in order to listen to him
How do we welcome and reverence the Lord? What do our actions show? Do
we remember the Lord’s presence in the Blessed Sacrament? How do we welcome the Lord in the scripture readings? How do we acknowledge his presence
in our brothers and sisters, both at Mass and afterwards?
Whether we kneel, stand, or sit in the Lord’s presence, may our hearts and
minds always be attuned to him.
