Following Jesus Even When Frightened and Confused
A few years ago, my daughters introduced me to Rick Riordan’s popular young adult series of books, Percy Jackson and the Olympians, in which a teenage boy, Percy, and his friends interact with the ancient Greek gods in modern day America. Whenever the gods reveal their “true” form, Percy and his friends must hide their eyes lest they be blinded or killed. Indeed, the teens often prefer to avoid the gods altogether, because the gods are capricious and cruel. Whenever I read the Percy Jackson books, I think about today’s Gospel reading.
In Mark’s Gospel, when Jesus revealed himself to Peter, James and John, although they were terrified and confused, they were brave enough to worship Jesus. Unlike Percy and his friends, instead of hiding, Peter, James and John followed Him.
