Wednesday, July 12th Gospel Reflection
Nice connection. Here is another one. Over the weekend, the Gospel reading was about people complaining about the feasting and celebrating that he was a part of. His response was, sort of, "we are in the seven years of fat, and the people are coming to me. We will have the seven years of lean, where I will send my people out."
So,as there is a certain power and significance in biblical numbers like 7,1,12,or 40,so there is in "One",like the One" prophet Elijah,or John the Baptist.
