Thursday of the 25 week in ordinary time

Why was Herod trying to see Jesus?
Maybe out of curiosity, checking who is this famous person?
Maybe out of fear- wanting to explain why he decided to behead John the Baptist.
Or maybe Herod wanted to see Jesus to reconcile, to say he was sorry for what he did.
We don’t know, but we do know that we have also done things in the past that we are not proud of, that we want to forget about, but we can and should always seek Jesus and ask for forgiveness. He is always ready to forgive and forget.
