St. Blaise – 

Let us not be as foolish as those in today’s story who could not accept Jesus because he was one of them. The tragedy of life is not death, but in what dies inside us while we are living, the death of genuine feeling, the death of acceptance of others, the death of openness to the gifts of others who can help us, the death of love, the death of our awareness of the presence of God in our lives.
