Friday of the second Week of Lent

Today’s readings

The great visionaries of our faith have often been rejected. Joseph, the prophets, and Jesus of course – all of these have been rejected by the people of power, even by their own families in some cases. If they have been rejected for propagating the faith, we disciples have to know that that same fate can await us. If the cornerstone has been rejected, then we building blocks have to know that we too may be rejected by our contemporaries, even by our families, when we live our faith. But the Spirit calls us to be true to our witness, and to place our faith in the One who knew the same rejection that we are suffering.
