Today's Gospel acclamation from Ephesians 1: May the Father of our Jesus Christ enlighten the eyes of our hearts... That's right, we need the Lord to enlighten our hearts, not our minds. The mind only serves the heart. With an enlightened heart, we'll be able to see and think clearly. We speak of "the heart of the matter," not "the mind of the matter." If your heart is for God, you are for him. Whether your heart is defiled or clean concerns our Lord the most, for he cares about our soul the most. Opening your heart up to God opens the door to your salvation!
