Gospel by pictures of Sunday 19th (B) in Ordinary Time (Aug. 9th)
Today, the Gospel shows how puzzled Jesus' compatriots were when in his presence: "This man is the son of Joseph, isn't he? We know his father and mother. How can he say that he has come from heaven?" (Jn 6:42). The life of Jesus amongst his own people had been so normal that, when He began with the proclamation of the Kingdom, those who knew him were shocked at what He was saying.
