February 3rd, Fourth Sunday of the Ordinary Time (Year C): Rejection

February 1st, 2013

Today in the Gospel we see Jesus' own people rejecting Him. They were too familiar with Him to listen to Him: "familiarity begets contempt". Jesus can only repeat the proverb, that a prophet is not accepted in his own country. Are we ready to undergo different hardships for the sake of Jesus and for the sake of His Gospel?
