5th Sunday of Lent - The Divine Referee

5th Sunday of Lent (C)




We all want to be referees of sorts. How often do we find ourselves yelling at the TV or from the crowd while watching a sporting event? The truth is that while we may disagree with the actual referee, we like having the referee. They provide us with a sense of trust knowing that they do their best to enforce the rule-book and make the game run as it should.

 But what about the Divine Referee? Not only do we see folks team up against him in today's Gospel, but they walk away humiliated after they are called out for what they are doing and who they really are. Do we sometimes try to do the job of the Divine Referee?
