Daily reflections: Wednesday, August 26/15


Gospel: Matthew 23:27... yesterday\'s Gospel, and today, is know as the Woe words of Jesus. As yesterday Matthew has Jesus saying to the scribes and Pharisees, “woe to you, scribes and Pharisees hypocrites!... you are beautiful on the outside but inside you are full of the bones of the dead and all kind of filth”. You can imagine the anger of those religious leaders to be called hypocrites by Jesus , they would lose face before the crowds, be humiliated, and showed up for what they were and so very embarrassing.


Reflection: in what way do these words turn your view of the world upside down?


Prayer Jesus, you had a great wisdom and a great courage to speak truth to power knowing that to do so would bring upon you criticism, oppression, and eventually your death. I pray that I will also possess some measure of the great wisdom and the courage to speak the  truth to power. Amen
