Gospel Reading: LK 12:49-53

“I came to cause fire upon the earth.” (Lk 12:49)

We often think of Jesus as a peace loving quiet person who only spoke of God’s love for us.

But we must remember that the land he was living in was being oppressed and cruelly treated by both the Romans and King Herod’s successors. If God’s kingdom had to be established on the earth, he had to speak out against injustice by the political and religious leaders thereby causing division and animosity even in families. So in the early church those who became disciples of Jesus had to face persecution even from their family members.

This is a reminder to us that we may have to suffer to be a true disciple of Jesus.
