For our further reflection on today’s readings, please read this excellent commentary by Fr. Eugene Hensell, OSB:
The phrase “talk is cheap” is a cliché not only because it is repeated time and again but most especially because it expresses an experiential truth. Nowhere is this more the case than in religion. People love to talk about religion from all perspectives. Religious arguments and disputes are commonplace in all areas of society. However, quite often the words end up being simply that—words. They do not lead to actions, behavior, or significant deeds. This is not something new nor was it something about which our Jewish and Christian ancestors were ignorant. All three readings plus the responsorial psalm of today’s liturgy address the issue of words related to actions.
