In today’s homily, Father Jerry says that, “Perhaps the reason many people could not accept Jesus or His gospel, was simply that He was too meek, too accepting, too humble. He did not live up to the expectations of the crowd. Jesus’ humility was a stumbling block. How could He be God’s prophet if He was willing to accept whoever came?”
Jesus insisted that He had come to do the will of His Father, and now He is saying that whoever comes to Him will have what the Father intended. The crowd came after Jesus because they wanted to see another miracle of loaves and fish. And as Father Jerry adds, “He disappointed them when he offered them something better.” See todays’ video above.
