Wednesday of the Thirteenth Week of Ordinary Time

Today’s readings

I always think it’s interesting that the demons know who Jesus is.  The Pharisees and scribes and religious leaders had a real hard time figuring that out, but the demons know and are in fear of him.  But the demons do have something in common with the townspeople: neither of them want anything to do with Jesus.  We are obviously here because we want to be close to Jesus, but the challenge is what happens when we leave this nice church and go to our jobs, our homes, or wherever life takes us today.  Will we see Jesus in each person that comes to us today, or will we have nothing to do with him?
