Blessed Are Those Persecuted in Christ's Name

If you are considering entering the Catholic Church, or even just going back to Mass again, you may be getting some pushback from family or friends.

In today's Gospel, we learn something about that, when Our Lord visits His hometown:

Jesus came with his disciples into the house. Again the crowd gathered, making it impossible for them even to eat. When his relatives heard of this they set out to seize him, for they said, “He is out of his mind.”
-- Mark 3:2-21

If people you care about think you've lost it because you are considering that maybe belief in God, in Christ, in His Church, might just make some sense after all, don't be afraid to follow the Truth where He leads you. Offer up to Christ your loved ones' resistance and the pain it causes you. Even though He's God, He's been there. He understands.
