A Reflection: These were Jewish folks, including Jesus, and it was Passover. It was like any special holiday as the crowd in Jerusalem was full of energy and anticipation. It was a time to remember, celebrate and reenact the time in which God liberated a people who were enslaved in Egypt. Do you think it’s a coincidence that Jesus’ act of liberating love would fall at the same time in which a community reminisced about the ancient story of God acting with liberating love? Maybe…but I tend to think it is less of a coincidence and more of God being God. And maybe, just maybe, it is what God is doing all the time. So I guess that would not be a coincidence, but a divine habit.
Prayer: What you prepared to demonstrate some 2000 years ago, O Lord, is what you have continued to show in one act of liberating love after another. From addiction to hate, from injustice to suffering, you are the One who rescues us with an immeasurable grace. Thank you! Amen.
