Thirtieth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Are we aware of our own blindness, of our inability to recognize Jesus who is passing through our everyday lives?  Do we urgently ask for insightful faith so that we recognize who Jesus really is?  Or are we reluctant to leave even the small, secure territory that we have staked out for ourselves and push forward to Jesus, ready to enter with him into whatever “Jerusalem” he will lead us, with his promise of a share in his passion, death…and resurrection?
