Preparing the Soul
Listen Now Jesus tried hard to convert the cities along the shores of Lake Gennesareth but they were hard hearted and refused to convert. Without this conversion it was unlikely these people would recognize Christ in their midst. We too, can be hard hearted and not recognize the grace of God in our lives. We need to mortify ourselves which prepares our soul to listen to the Lord. This is why Fridays are a day of penance in the Church.
