“Follow me and leave the dead to bury their dead” 

Lectio

When Jesus saw a crowd around him, he gave orders to cross to the other shore. A scribe approached and said to him  “Teacher, I will follow you wherever you go.” Jesus answered him, “Foxes have dens and birds of the sky have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to rest his head.” Another of his disciples said to him, “Lord, let me go first and bury my father.” But Jesus answered him, “Follow me, and let the dead bury their dead.” (Mt 8:18-22)
