Zechariah 2:5-9, 14-5; Jeremiah 31:10-13; Luke 9:43-45

It’s okay: you can go there

A few constant themes appear in the prophets’ writings: "God is in your midst; God is very close." These were very important for the people of Israel living in scary times. These messages of hope are equally important for us today. In both yesterday's and today's Gospel passages, Jesus is trying to prepare his disciples for the inevitability of his suffering and death. They simply don't understand. What about us? Can we bear to face suffering and death? Maybe start talking about your dying with those you love, or prepare your funeral.
