We honour and acknowledge Jesus for many things: as teacher, as preacher, as healer, as Messiah, as Lord, as Son of God. And in the gospel we see him, even if at first reluctantly, as breaker of rules. Jesus goes where he shouldn’t, and does what he mustn’t, and shows us that God can be found even where we think God isn’t, or can’t, or won’t possibly be.
-Br. James Koester, SSJE
