Reflection

Since man and woman succumbed to temptation, human life has been deeply affected by sin. But God promised to send someone who would vanquish the tempter. Today’s gospel presents Jesus as the promised victor over Satan. The crowds recognize their liberator, although his relatives are sceptical and the learned men of Jerusalem even ascribe his powers to Satan. To clear himself of their charge, Jesus gives two examples. Internal dissensions, whether in governments or families, end in the collapse of the institution. Satan would not use his own power to liberate the enslaved from his rule! Then Jesus compares himself to a burglar who takes a strong man by surprise; he is stronger than Satan. Solemnly Jesus warns that we must not reject the Holy Spirit, thereby refusing forgiveness. Most striking is Jesus’ insistence that we are related to him when we listen to his word and do God’s will; blood ties are irrelevant. As Christ was victorious so will we be, St. Paul says. Our Christian optimism is a test of our faith in Christ’s victory.

SHARELIFE

Living the Gospel by helping youth rebuild their lives

Sarah couldn’t get along with her mother, so she tried living on the streets at age 14. She hitchhiked to Toronto to move in with her cousin, who soon kicked her out. Having no place to go, Sarah decided to try Sancta Maria House. She initially hated the structure and rules. However, the supportive staff won her trust and helped her return to school. At the end of her stay, she restored her relationship with her mother. ShareLife-funded agencies like Sancta Maria House are helping at-risk youth turn their lives around.

Please make a sacrificial gift to ShareLife through your parish or sharelife.org
