Take the road with courage

On this Sunday, which marks the resumption of the so-called ordinary liturgical time, after the Easter season followed by its feasts, we resume the reading followed by the Gospel according to St. Luke. This new liturgical environment where our Sunday celebrations will take place coincides with the beginning of summer, this new environment where we hope to take the time to live smoothly.
But here the gospel passage of this Sunday (Lk 9,51-62) has the effect of a big cloud eclipsing the hot and bright rays of the sun. First, Jesus takes the road to Jerusalem with courage, his teeth clenched, because the outcome will be fatal. On the way, he is forbidden access to a village of Samaritans who are in religious break with the Jews. Then a series of interactions with Jesus places us before the seriousness of the Christian life.
Two men want to follow Jesus and a third is called by Jesus himself. Two want to first settle their obligations: one to bury his father, the other to say goodbye to the people of his house. A third is served with a serious warning: an austere and sober life awaits him. Thanks! "Do not become a disciple of Jesus who wants" could we say. This scene makes me think of the parable of the sower where the nature of the soil (path, stones, brambles, good soil) influences the fertility of the seed. We find in the figure the human reactions (refusal, indifference, welcome) in relation to the Word that Christ sows in our hearts and our minds more or less congested.
Reading this gospel passage, one is inclined to wonder: would Jesus want to discourage a human being from becoming a disciple that he could not do better? On the other hand, his answers to the cookie-cut whip the will, force to stand up and raise the head to accept a project of life which will imply a surpassing of oneself. To live as a disciple of Jesus is an important decision and the work of a lifetime.
As Tertullian, a theologian of the first centuries, said, "one is not born a Christian, one becomes born by baptism". But let us add: once baptized a Christian, one must learn to become a disciple of Christ. It takes some conversion effort to adjust to the "Jesus way" of living, knowing that it will take us on paths other than the beaten paths that offer no challenge. The ways of Jesus are full of discoveries about oneself, about others, about God; and also, full of self-transcendence beyond our expectations.
