Follow Me...again, and again, and again...
Gospel reading? Matthew 4:12-23.
The thrust of the passage? Jesus calls James and John to "follow me." Forget the dad, Zebedee: the thrust is with the young sons. Let dad go home with mom, though there is no doubt that soon or later he is going to a follower of Jesus.
32 times, the word "Follow" shows up in the Gospels.
That some times means going places we may not want to go, but must go.
That's the thrust of pilgrimage: Follow.
