Lk 13: 31-35

At that very hour some Pharisees came and said to him, “Get away from here, for Herod wants to kill you.” He said to them, “Go and tell that fox for me, ‘Listen, I am casting out demons and performing cures today and tomorrow, and on the third day I finish my work. Yet today, tomorrow, and the next day I must be on my way, because it is impossible for a prophet to be killed outside of Jerusalem.’ 

Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the city that kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to it! How often have I desired to gather your children together as a hen gathers her brood under her wings, and you were not willing! See, your house is left to you. And I tell you, you will not see me until the time comes when you say, ‘Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord.’”

Grace to continue on our journey

“Yet I must continue on my way today, tomorrow, and the following day…”

We are seven months into the U.S. experience of COVID, and the effects of individual and collective grief continue to manifest as we mourn so much: the senseless loss of lives, normalcy and routine, and real connection. As fall settles in, so can the heaviness in our hearts.

Yet, Jesus reminds us that his healing continues — even in the midst of his own difficult journey to Jerusalem. Over the last seven months, I’ve experienced this healing in the resurrection of long-dormant relationships, and in the realignment of my priorities with my deepest desires. It is these surprising glimpses of grace that help me, along with Jesus, to “continue on my way today, tomorrow, and the following day,” as the translation we hear at Mass states, despite the grueling effort it often takes.

What surprising glimpses of grace and healing help you to “continue on your way today, tomorrow, and the following day”?
