Reflection for the Week - April 22

Following in the footsteps of the Crucified and Risen One will sometimes carry with it a myriad of difficult consequences in this life. Recall one. As Jesus went into his home town and was amazed at the lack of faith that he found there, we too may encounter complications with the apparently faithless crowds that surround us. Moving ahead is hard in these circumstances, but necessary. We need courage and to not fear, for God is with us on the journey, even though it may appear to us at certain times, to be arduous and unproductive.
