Spoiler alert! If you have or haven’t seen Obi-Wan Kenobi, the new show on Disney+, here is Obi-Wan Kenobi, who is struggling with a lot of fear. Obi-Wan gets rid of his identity as a Jedi and buries his lightsaber in the sand. But what’s so amazing is one of his buddies, Senator Organa, comes to him and basically reminds him of his identity. And so that fear, that anxiety, starts to fade away because someone else has reminded him of his identity as a Jedi, who he truly is.
In Sunday’s Gospel today, there’s the scene of Martha and Mary, where Martha is very anxious about many things, but Mary is able to rest with Jesus. The same thing applies to us. When we realize how loved we are by Him, that can take away so much of that fear, that anxiety, that is absolutely from the evil one. And that we can actually reclaim our lightsaber, or aka your identity in Christ.
