On Today’s Gospel

Posted: February 7, 2013 by CatholicJules in Personal Thoughts & Reflections


How wonderful is the Word of God indeed!  Our Lord has called each and everyone of us to share His Word with all the nations, have we responded to that call today?

His Word, brings light upon darkness, makes pure that which is unclean, are we not eager to participate in the conversion of sinners by and through His Word? To give true hope where there is none? To bring joy where sadness prevails? To bring peace where there is turmoil?

Trust in the Lord our God! When we respond to His call, will He not provide what we need? Why do we worry about this and that? Has He ever failed us while we were on His mission? Never I tell you! Have faith! …

When we evangelise, we do so with love and charity, do not be upset if you face rejection or ridicule, do not carry the hurt with you.  Instead lift it up to the Lord and trust that He can turn any curse into blessing. All we are asked to do is plant His seed, He will do the rest.

GOSPEL Mark 6:7–13

Jesus summoned the Twelve and began to send them out two by two and gave them authority over unclean spirits. He instructed them to take nothing for the journey but a walking stick –no food, no sack, no money in their belts. They were, however, to wear sandals but not a second tunic. He said to them, “Wherever you enter a house, stay there until you leave from there. Whatever place does not welcome you or listen to you, leave there and shake the dust off your feet in
testimony against them.” So they went off and preached repentance. The Twelve drove out many demons, and they anointed with oil many who were sick and cured them.
