DG BookGospel: Luke 4:24-30
Jesus added, “No prophet is honored in his own country. Truly, I say to you, there were many widows in Israel in the days
of Elijah, when the heavens withheld rain for three years and six months and a great famine came over the whole land.
Yet, Elijah was not sent to any of them, but to a widow of Zarephath, in the country of Sidon. There were also many lepers

in Israel in the time of Elisha, the prophet; and no one was healed except Naaman, the Syrian.” On hearing these words, the whole
assembly became indignant. They rose up and brought him out of the town, to the edge of the hill on which Nazareth is built, intending to
throw him down the cliff. But he passed through their midst and went his way.

 

Reflection:

 

“My daughter is participating in a singing competition. This
is the video of her song. Please watch and like it.” I presume
you have also received such “compelling” requests over
Facebook/YouTube/WhatsApp. They wouldn’t even mind if
we do not watch it; they just want our “likes.” And we “like”
them, for not wanting to be seen as rude. Then there is
another reverse phenomenon: if someone writes an article that
goes against the popular grain, he or she would be bombarded
with utterly foul comments often replete with personal
attacks. The “anonymity” that internet provides releases the
cannibalistic tendencies within us. Both phenomena mentioned
above are, in fact, variations of the same theme: our aversion to
truth and the reluctance to face to it. Most of us fail to speak the
truth; and when someone holds a mirror to us, we shred him/her
to pieces. Not very different from the audience of Jesus, perhaps?
