Pharisees (John 11)

The Pharisees said, “What are we going to do? If we leave him alone, all will believe in him.” So they planned to kill Jesus.

Reflection:
Instead of being perceived as the long awaited Messiah by the church authorities, Jesus was considered a threat to be illuminated.

Prayer:
Lord God, how sad that the precious gift of your Son was rejected by those very ones who should have welcomed him with open arms.
