“A prophet is not without honor, except in his native place.”
In this week’s Gospel, Jesus returns to his hometown. When he begins to teach in the synagogue, many are astonished and some take offense – still remembering him as a young man. They haven’t experienced the teacher and healer he has become. Consequently, Jesus isn’t able to accomplish much for their lack of faith. All of us face situations where we are bound by people’s perception of us. Bernadette Farrell’s prayerful song, “O God, You Search Me,” offers an important reminder of the One who knows us truly and completely.
