John 6:64 But among you there are some who do not believe.
For me, this experience makes Jesus’ Incarnation seem more real. It reminds me that Jesus was a real man with a real family. His family loved him, teased him, watched him grow up. The story about how he wandered off during the trip back from Jerusalem and was found in the temple lecturing the priests was probably pulled out at family gatherings until everyone was sick of hearing it. He was one of us, God incarnate whose death and resurrection remain a holy mystery, and a kid with brothers who messed with him, whose parents were proud when he took his first steps.
Today the Church remembers Cornelius the Centurion.
