02-05-14 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

February 5, 2014
(St. Agatha, Virgin and Martyr)
Jesus came back home and taught in His “native place.”  His neighbors were astounded by His teaching, wisdom and deeds.  And yet they replied:  “Is he not the carpenter, the son of Mary, and the brother of James and Joseph and Judas and Simon?  And are not his sisters here with us?” And they took offense at him. Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor except in his native place and among his own kin and in his own house.”
So he was not able to perform any mighty deed there, apart from curing a few sick people by laying his hands on them.  He was amazed at their lack of faith.  Mk 6:1-6

They were equally amazed at each other.  It’s the Bible’s way of saying, Jesus couldn’t believe how stupid they were.  They just witnessed His speech.  They attested to seeing His mighty deeds and yet, out of jealousy they “took offense at Him.”  Sounds like our world today.  And we won’t go into that.  It either makes you cry or laugh out loud!
Amazing!
