MISSION TO PREACH

The Gospel today begins with the call to mission of the twelve disciples by Jesus, those He had already chosen as His companies and friends.

“He summoned the twelve…” (Mark 6:7) He sent them out two by two on their journey with authority to spread the message of repentance; to heal the sick, to love simply and to travel light without being pre-occupied by material things.

While we are not all born to preach, we through our baptism are called to spread the Gospel. We don’t all have to go out on the missions to do so. We live the Gospel by just being where we are and the daily example of our lives, lived out in simplicity.

Being human we will not all live perfect lives, but in striving to live by faith and love we can live the Gospel message.In our own corner of the world, maybe we will be the only example that some people ever have of the message of the Gospel. How do we do that in simplicity? By detaching ourselves from our own needs and making ourselves available for the needs of others. By simply opening our hearts to people, the reality of their lives and our Christian values we are already on the journey of discipleship.

As St. Therese of Lisieux puts it: “If God doesn’t have your heart, He has nothing”.

Has he mine?

SEEING YOUR LIFE THROUGH THE LENS OF THE GOSPEL

Mark 6:7-13

Jesus gave the disciples a share in his mission by sending them out ahead of him. It was a gesture of trust and confidence on his part, even though they did not fully understand his mission. Have you ever been surprised by the trust shown in you by others to speak or act on their behalf? 

Jesus sent the disciples out two by two. Perhaps your experience gives you examples of the value of having another with you when engaged in an important task.

The apparently strange instructions given by Jesus were intended to counteract practices by bogus preachers who used preaching as a mask for money-making. The disciples of Jesus focus on the mission and not on their own comforts. Is it your experience that vested interests can impede a task, whereas having the right motives makes your mission more effective?

The task of the disciples was to call people to repent (metanoia meaning conversion, changing the way we look at God and at other people). Who have been the disciples, the people in your life who have called you to be more trusting in God? To whom have you given this call?

John Byrne, osa, Intercom 2018

MUSINGS

‘I thank God that many families, which are far from considering themselves perfect, live in love, fulfil their calling and keep moving forward, even if they fall many times along the way. The Synod’s refelections show us that there is no stereotype of the ideal family, but rather a challenging mosaic made up of many different realities, with all their joys, hopes and problems.’

Pope Francis
