Every day in the world people are condemned; for being the wrong colour, race, religion, age or sex. Someone who is just different is condemned by being left out, ignored or joked about. They just don’t fit in. Jesus didn’t fit in. He upset the powerful; religious leaders and political, and so he is scapegoated and condemned to die on a cross.
Prayer. Jesus forgive us those times we have condemned you in others through our silence and indifference. Help us to love and welcome all as you did. Teach how to follow you.
