How much can you really know a person? When it comes
down to it, you might know their origins, maybe their
parents and siblings. Apart from profession and family,
that's about it.
We are more than our lineage and abilities, and yet
we seem to defer to a person's rank or status in society.
Most will normally take a ticket or lecture on bad
driving from a policeman. However, were a neighbour
to point out our failings, rising to our lips would
be the words: 'Who do you think you are?'
To which we could answer - 'A prophet', based on today's
readings. We have a peculiar power over each other,
particularly in families: to build or belittle; raise
up or destroy; instill confidence or cripple with
disbelief. When nearest isn't dearest, we can know
each other too well, and take a dim view rather than
a bright vision of family members.
This was true in Nazareth, where even Jesus was paralysed
by a lack of faith that refused to see beyond the
carpenter to the prophet. Just as true today - when
we should wonder what prophetic voices we are ignoring
or silencing, even in our own family.
'There is a prophet among them' (First Reading).
