“He was teaching his disciples and telling them, ‘The Son of Man is to be handed over to men and they will kill him, and three days after his death the Son of Man will rise.’ But they did not understand the saying, and they were afraid to question him.
Do you identify with the disciples here in their fear to question Jesus about his words?
What underlies your fear? Is it because you really don’t want to believe what he is saying because it is too painful even for you?
Talk with Jesus about your fear and listen for his response.
Heritage word—“The greater our trust, the richer the flow of graces from the Sacred Heart into our hearts.”
