Reflection for Saturday January 21, Saint Agnes, Virgin and Martyr; Mark 3:20-21

Gospel Mark 3:20-21
Jesus came with his disciples into the house. Again the crowd gathered, making it impossible for them even to eat. When his relatives heard of this they set out to seize him, for they said, "He is out of his mind."

Reflection:
An intelligent young man decided to enter the seminary against the will of his parents and relatives. Being poor and the only child his parents wanted him to be a doctor so that he’ll become rich and eventually properly take care of his parents. But he was adamant in his desire thus he was labelled as someone that is out of His mind by his relatives and friends.

Jesus too was called as someone that is out of his mind by his relatives because He chose to live the life of an itinerant preacher. He chose to fight for the poor and oppressed, he chose to go against some of the Jewish laws specifically the law of the Sabbath. Thus earning the ire of the powerful Jewish elite.

Be not afraid to tread the less travelled road of Jesus. Follow it for so long as you are not steeping on the toes of anyone and you’re not doing any wrong. They may oppose it now but in God’s time they surely would be enlightened and they will understand you.

The voice of God is much superior than any worldly voice. You therefore have to hear it and follow it notwithstanding the contradiction and opposition. -  Marino J. Dasmarinas
