Jesus facepalms then lovingly tries another metaphor.
We and the disciples often forget the cross and the empty tomb are the path of discipleship and none other than the way of life. Sometimes, be it ego or our own stuff, we lose sight of what it means to follow in the Way. Thanks a lot for listening! We pray the Word will transform you into the image of Christ which is to say, a suffering servant, a wounded healer, a child of God.
