Jeremiah 11:18-20; Psalm 7; John 7:40-52

There has never been anyone who has spoken like him

In our gospel we sense the conflict about the possibility of Jesus being the Messiah. The authorities maintain their finite way of seeing who a Messiah would be and where he would come from, while the police refrain from arresting Jesus, because in listening to him, they sense the infinite -- “there has never been anyone who has spoken like him”. We too can have an inner conflict, between confining ourselves in a finite way and the quiet insistent invitation to reach for the infinite. How does our prayer awaken us to more?
