I am with you always until the end of this world - Jesus (Matthew 28:20).

Preach the Word in season and out of season reproving, rebuking or advising always with patience and providing instructions (2 Timothy 4:2).

Do not fear, Mary, for God has looked kindly on you (Luke 1:30).

Anything worth doing is worth doing poorly. - G. K. Chesterton

My Gospel Reflections for February 4, Wednesday Mark 6:1-6

My Reflections:
What is the feeling of a person who will be going back to the place where he spent almost thirty years of his life? Of course it’s a mix feeling of excitement and anticipation. This must have been the feeling of Jesus while He was on His way to Nazareth—His native place.

Unfortunately He got a rude welcome from His town mates, He was mocked some even took offense at Him. For whatever reasons I don’t know. Perhaps they were envious of Jesus sudden fame with the Masses; perhaps they could not accept that Jesus has become an eloquent speaker and a healer. Perhaps they have that crab mentality mindset already.

As a consequence of their unbelieving attitude Jesus did not make any spectacular healings there for He was amazed at their lack of faith. His townsfolk lack of faith invites us also to examine our own faith in Jesus. Maybe it’s lacking also.
