Pope in Santa Marta: does Word of God touch my heart or does it go in and out one ear?

During Mass in Casa Santa Marta, Pope Francis reflected on the significance of Sunday for Christians.

He said that it is a feast day in which the Word of God has the leading role.

The feast of Sunday cannot be understood without the Word of God. Do I pay attention to the Word of God? Do I let it touch my heart, or do I stand there staring at the ceiling thinking of other things, and the Word goes in one ear and out the other?

Pope Francis has recently instituted a Sunday dedicated to the Word of God. It will be a special feast in which Christians will contemplate the importance of the Holy Scriptures in the Church.
