“Titanium,” David Guetta, feat. Sia
Gospel reflection for February 3, 4th Sunday in Ordinary Time: People often rejected Jesus during his life and ministry, even those close to him, even his hometown folks. For speaking the truth of who he is – the prophet God has anointed to bring good news to the poor – the people of Nazareth try to push him off a cliff in Sunday’s gospel. When we feel rejected or misunderstood, we can always turn to Jesus to understand what we are going through – he has been there, too.
Key Lines: I’m bulletproof, nothing to lose/Fire away, fire away/Ricochet, you take your aim/Fire away, fire away/You shoot me down but I won’t fall/I am titanium
Questions: Who in history has experienced their communities rejecting them? How did they impact the world even though their community rejected them? Who are people in your parish that others reject? How can you help make your school, parish, or neighborhood community more accepting of those who feel rejected? How can hurtful things sometimes make someone stronger?
