We are working our way through the Joseph stories of Genesis. This one is found in chapter 39.
When [Joseph’s] master heard the words that his wife spoke to him, [falsely] saying, ‘This is the way your servant treated me’, he became enraged. And Joseph’s master took him and put him into the prison, the place where the king’s prisoners were confined; he remained there in prison.
Reflection – Joseph is imprisoned unjustly. How do you feel when you hear of people who are imprisoned for a crime they did not commit? Why is it so hard to change, let alone challenge, an unjust system?
