His Rejections


..as soon as they saw him they implored him to leave the neighborhood. (Mark 8:34)

How painful was it when you saw possessions counted more than humans? Were you surprised that a crowd could so quickly turn against you?
Heart of Jesus, buffeted for your sheer goodness...

Pope Francis: "Jesus, the evangelizer par excellence and the Gospel in person, identifies especially with the little ones. This reminds us Christians that we are called to care for the vulnerable of the earth. But the current model, with its emphasis on success and self-reliance, does not appear to favor an investment in efforts to help the slow, the weak or the less talented to find opportunities in life." EG 209
