Friday of the Second Week of Lent

The stone that the builders rejected
has become the cornerstone;
by the Lord has this been done,
and it is wonderful in our eyes
— Matthew 21:43, from today’s Gospel

Jesus, though rejected by the authorities and scholars of his day, has become the cornerstone, according to God’s design. What or who in my life am I busy rejecting that God is laying as a cornerstone instead? Where am I invited to see Jesus present, rather than to turn away from him?

Over at the Spiritual Exercises blog, our brother Jesuits remind us to listen for the King who is calling.
