First of all - HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAR ANNA!!

Got called into work early. The first day of my last week. It's hard for me to believe . . . that it's my last week, that is. :) I'll try to check in later, but no promises.

Gospel

Monday of the Third Week of Advent
Mt 21:23-27

When Jesus had come into the temple area,
the chief priests and the elders of the people approached him
as he was teaching and said,
“By what authority are you doing these things?
And who gave you this authority?”
Jesus said to them in reply,
“I shall ask you one question, and if you answer it for me,
then I shall tell you by what authority I do these things.
Where was John’s baptism from?
Was it of heavenly or of human origin?”
They discussed this among themselves and said,
“If we say ‘Of heavenly origin,’ he will say to us,
‘Then why did you not believe him?’
But if we say, ‘Of human origin,’ we fear the crowd,
for they all regard John as a prophet.”
So they said to Jesus in reply, “We do not know.”
He himself said to them,
“Neither shall I tell you by what authority I do these things.”

Thoughts from the cornfield:
Let's see, did we not have Pharisees milling about and being baptized by John? You really can't believe one without believing the other. I love it when Jesus answers questions with questions . . . because in doing so he gives some of the most amazing answers.

God bless our troops!
