From today’s Gospel (Luke 4:24-30):
‘Jesus came to Nazara and spoke to the people in the synagogue: ‘I tell you solemnly, no prophet is ever accepted in his own country.’
Don’t ever be down or despondent when people close to you don’t share your conviction for the Faith. Even Jesus was met with derision among his own people as he tried to preach to them and spread the Good News. He was rejected by many of his own people. And if it happened to Jesus it will most certainly happen to you.
We are all challenged to remain strong in our faith. That way we can be certain that Jesus is always with us in our difficulties.
