They did not recognize him

Today is Saturday, the second week of Advent is over. Tomorrow is Gaudete Sunday, on which we light the rose candle, a Sunday of joy.

As it is Saturday, and I should start on my Gospel reflection for tomorrow, but just wanted to give a suggestion for some pondering.

Jesus tells us that the people did not recognize Elijah when he came and that He Himself will not be recognised either. So the question is how do we recognise Jesus, how do we recognise His touch in our lives?
It is there, but are we aware of it, or maybe expecting something different, something grander in the worldly view as did the Jews at that time? Do we notice the little wisper in our heart?

More on that later....
