In today’s gospel reading, the apostles did not yet possess the fullness of the gift of Wisdom. We read that Jesus foretells His Passion as He states, ““Pay attention to what I am telling you. The Son of Man is to be handed over to men.’”
However, the apostles were afraid. Look what it says next, “But they did not understand this saying; its meaning was hidden from them so that they should not understand it, and they were afraid to ask him about this saying.”
Are we afraid to ask God about things we do not understand? He should be the first one we go to in times of fear and/or doubt. Let us practice turning to God first.
