“So he was not able to perform any mighty deed there, apart from curing a few sick people by laying his hands on them. He was amazed at their lack of faith.” (MK 6: 5-6)
So sad: “He was not able to perform any mighty deed there,” because of their lack of faith. And the reason for their lack of faith was that they knew Him. Our Lord came to His “native place.” Sometimes we can’t make our own “mighty deeds” – correct our bad habits, improve our gentleness or respect – because our own spouse, who has known us “forever,” doesn’t believe in us any longer. It happens, but when we can look at each other with the hope of a new start, when we give us a new chance, we can be amazed.
“My sheep hear my voice, says the Lord; I know them, and they follow me.” (Gospel Acclamation)
