TENTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME - YEAR B
9th & 10th of June, 2018


Reflection by Fr Michael Tate

 

The first way to reject the real Jesus is to domesticate him, and that is what members of his blood family were trying to do. They thought he was ‘out of his mind’, madly putting himself [and them] in harm’s way and he had to be restrained.

Have you or I tried to domesticate Jesus Christ, to reduce him to a non-threatening Jesus-meek-and-mild? If so, we are closer to the family of Nazareth standing just outside his circle, ready to run for cover, than to the new family seated around him, really listening to him and therefore vulnerable.

The second way is to misconstrue all the evidence of Jesus’ mission on earth and to claim that he must be in league with the devil, ‘He has an unclean spirit’.

If you do this publicly, as did these religious leaders, then you have deliberately put God’s plan for the salvation of others at risk, and it is this which is unforgivable. This is real blasphemy.

We might pause for a moment, implore the grace of God, determine to really hear the Gospels, discern the will of God for our lives, and so come back within the ultimate family allegiance of those who dare to call God ‘our Father’.
