Feast of St. Fidelis of Sigmaringen 

John 10:22-30 

Jesus met increasing resistance from certain religious leaders of his day as the radical nature of his mission and message became clearer. Even the crowds began to voice their doubts about the identity of Jesus. Many had dared hope he was the Messiah but he had never explicitly claimed that title for himself. “If you did not understand my words, how could you not have understood my actions? Everything that I have done bears witness to the power of God that dwells in me and works through me!” 

The challenge to us is quite clear – do our actions speak to the world that we believe in Jesus Christ? Where are we on this journey in being “other Christs?”
