Monday, the 7th week of Ordinary Time
The second example comes from the onlookers and their concern for the bodies of the dead., not just Jesus. The gospel writer uses plural pronouns to talk about the dead. We would usually expect this story to be all about Jesus.
i guess it is relatively easy to watch out for and take care of our own, our parents and siblings. Maybe even extended family and close friends. The more distance between us and others, the less likely we are to reach out.
This gospel is a subtle example of what we find all over the gospels: love God, love yourself, love your neighbor, love your enemies, love those you don't even know.
How are you at extending love towards the strangers in your midst? It's what we are talking about when we talk about radical hospitality. Give it a try.
