The rejection of Jesus and his followers

 
Saturday of second week in Ordinary Time, based on Mark 3:20-21

(this preaching appeared originally on theWord on 23 January 2010)


Jesus came with his disciples into the house, and the crowd came together again, so that they could not even eat. When his family heard it, they went out to restrain him, for people were saying, “He has gone out of his mind.”
