COUNTING THE COSTS
Today?s Gospel begins with, ?Great crowds accompanied Jesus on is way?? Sounds great! The problem is, these people followed Jesus without knowing where he was going. Jesus was on the way to Jerusalem, on the way to his passion and death on the cross. But they followed him out of curiosity, or to see more miracles. No wonder Jesus had to wake them up and say that to follow him means taking up one?s cross. Many have joined our church, but have not made a choice to walk with Jesus towards the cross. We want to avoid the cross, we lament when crosses come our way. We complain and ask God why he allows this or that suffering or problem.
Lord, you demand much from me who wants to follow you. But you went ahead and showed me that it is worthwhile to take up my little crosses. I am ready to pay a lot for something nice in this life. How can I be so stingy and not be ready to pay also the price for the most beautiful thing I can imagine: living with you forever?
St. Godfrey, bishop confessor, pray for us.
