Today’s Gospel starts with a conversation with which Jesus begins his journey to Jerusalem—and the cross. As his followers, we strive march with him, even to the cross. Paul’s Letter to the Galatians tells us that we who have been baptized have “clothed” ourselves with Christ. Being one with Christ, we must no longer discriminate according to nationality or race, according to social status, according to gender. The prophet Zechariah, centuries before anyone heard of Jesus, spoke of how the people find God’s message uncomfortable, and so turn against the messengers. Later, though, the people awaken to the realization of what they have done and are moved to repentance. Thus, they are always welcomed back by God, who always gives us grace to do the right thing, however difficult it may be.
God our Father,
In your wisdom and love you made all things.
Bless these men
that they may be strengthened as Christian fathers.
Let the example of their faith and love shine forth.
Grant that we, their sons and daughters,
may honor them always
with a spirit of profound respect.
