Exodus 2:1-15, Psalm 69, Matthew 11:20-24


All these readings are about oppression and hardship: the plight of the Jews in Egypt, a psalmist praying for protection, and Jesus crying out at the cities that have rejected him. As well, John the Baptist is in prison. Jesus knows what will happen to John. But he is also aware of the evil that comes from the prison of self-interest. I admire Mother Teresa who was asked by a journalist why she chose to work with the dying and destitute. She replied, “I do it to combat the Hitler in me.”
