Good morning, happy Friday, and many blessings.
The Gospel today (Matthew 13:54-58) tells us of Jesus’ visit to Nazareth, His native community. Passing through Nazareth was painful for Jesus. What was His community at the beginning, now is no longer. Something has changed.
It seems there was a moment when the light broke through, when the people realized the power of Jesus’ wisdom and actions. Then the clouds came over and they thought, ‘If he were so special we would not have missed it.’
