Liturgical day: Thursday 25th in Ordinary Time

Gospel text (Lk 9,7-9): King Herod heard of all that Jesus was doing and did not know what to think, for people said, «This is John, raised from the dead». Others believed that Elijah or one of the ancient prophets had come back to life. As for Herod, he said, «I had John beheaded; who is this man about whom I hear such wonders?». And he was anxious to see him. King Herod heard of all that Jesus was doing and did not know what to think, for people said, «This is John, raised from the dead».

Today we are facing another person looking for the "god-clown". He had his concerns ... But he did not exceed the level of the esoteric curiosity. Just like nowadays!

"I was looking for him!" Wouldn’t be better to "follow" him instead? When someone does not see his neighbor (because he kills him, tramples him, criticizes him, ignores him ...) he does not see God either.
