“They discussed this among themselves and said, ‘If we say ‘Of heavenly origin,’ he will say to us, ‘Then why did you not believe him?’ But if we say, ‘Of human origin,’ we fear the crowd, for they all regard John as a prophet.” (MT 21: 25-26)
They put a trap on themselves with their question. Now they need to answer, recognizing Our Lord’s teaching origin: of heavenly or human origin? We could have the same problem in our lives with recognition: I am called to be married, but my spouse is not good for me, or I am called to be married, am I good for my spouse? Marriage is not to be loved (only), but to love my spouse unconditionally and not happy for what I receive from him/her, but happy for being a gift for my spouse.
“Show us, LORD, your love, and grant us your salvation.” (Gospel Acclamation)
