AUDITION

But some of them said, “By Beelzebul, the prince of demons, he is driving out demons.” – Luke 11:15

Let’s call him Jitters, my friend who used to tremble and sweat big time in front of crowds. His hand would sweat so much when he held the microphone, he needed a hanky for him not to get electrocuted.
He knew he could speak, host, sing, dance and act. One day he went to an audition for the sake of conquering his stage fright but had no intentions of joining the sing-actdance group. With that pressure off, he gave his all and enjoyed the process. He passed!
The others who made it have been in showbiz since birth. They’ve done albums, movies and TV shows. Jitters considered it a miracle. Some didn’t believe in him and didn’t see what was in front of them. Years later, he went on to record an album, appeared and hosted TV shows and made commercials.
In today’s Gospel, the crowd saw a miracle happen right in front of them: Jesus driving out a demon. But some, instead of seeing and believing, chose to look the other way and convinced themselves Jesus was in cahoots with the devil.
Big and small “miracles” happen in front of us every now and then. With big faith, let’s recognize them and be God’s witnesses. Carlo Lorenzo (carloflorenzo@yahoo.com)

REFLECTION:
When good things happen to other people, do I choose to be happy for them or do I put malice in the situation?

Open our eyes, Lord, to see Your greatness in situations when others are exalted. Take away the dirt in our hearts that poison how we see the big and small miracles already in front of us.
