August 31 Reflection - This man speaks with full authority!
The images of the historical Jesus not always reflect the charismatic and highly attractive person he must have been. When he went to a place, it was not only as if the whole room had lighted up: there were changes of attitude, conversions of life. The presence of Jesus filled up everything and changed everything. He had authority.
Whom do you grant moral authority? What are the characteristics of those people? Do you give them more or the same authority that you give to the words of Jesus in your life?
