He withdrew from that place

“The Pharisees went out and took counsel against Jesus to put him to death. When Jesus realized this, he withdrew from that place.” (MT 12: 14-15)

Not every place, every job, profession or environment is good for us, for our vocation or our identity, for our marriage or family. When we reflect, when we ask the right questions, when we build the right environment and are supported by others and support others, we are able to “withdrew from that place” and start a new one.

“God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation.” (Gospel Acclamation)
