Readings

In today’s gospel Jesus experiences rejection at the hands of his own people. Often when a person grows in faith those who know them notice a difference and can reject the change. While we like to hold on to what is familiar and safe, our faith compels us to go out from our comfort zones and risk rejection from those who know us.
