“Jesus departed from there and came to his native place, accompanied by his disciples. When the sabbath came he began to teach in the synagogue, and many who heard him were astonished.” (MK 6: 1-2)
Our Lord had His native place, like we do. He lives in Heaven with His Father and the Holy Spirit; He lives also with us. He knows how important it is to have a place you can call “native place”; it is connected with traditions, language, family members, neighbors and friends. We are not alone; we are connected with others, and we live for others. This is important for our places, and this is important for Heaven.
“My sheep hear my voice, says the Lord; I know them, and they follow me.” (Gospel Acclamation)
