Gospel text (Lk 9:57-62): As Jesus and his disciples were proceeding on their journey, someone said to him, "I will follow you wherever you go." Jesus answered him, "Foxes have dens and birds of the sky have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to rest his head." As Jesus and his disciples were proceeding on their journey, someone said to him, "I will follow you wherever you go." Jesus answered him, "Foxes have dens and birds of the sky have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to rest his head." And to another he said, "Follow me." But he replied, "Lord, let me go first and bury my father." But he answered him, "Let the dead bury their dead. But you, go and proclaim the Kingdom of God." And another said, "I will follow you, Lord, but first let me say farewell to my family at home." Jesus answered him, "No one who sets a hand to the plow and looks to what was left behind is fit for the Kingdom of God.

Today we continue traveling with Jesus towards Jerusalem. Along the way, after suffering the rejection from a town of Samaritans, several people meet Jesus and want to follow the Master. Apparently Jesus imposes harsh conditions. Maybe it's not that much!

- Life itself has its demands. Who has an eternal "lair" in this life? Is it not true that sometimes we waste time with useless things? Can you start forming a family, a company ... and then back out?
