St Henry II
Genesis 44:18-21, 23-29; 45:1-5. Remember the marvels the Lord has done – Psalm 104(105):16-21. Matthew 10:7-15.
May we always be bearers of the Good News
Proclaim the good news, ‘The kingdom of heaven has come near’. Do we proclaim the Good News in our everyday lives? What holds us back? The mundane nature of each day, filled with work and chores? Fear of being mocked or judged? Unease of proclaiming Good News in a world that is so evidently struggling with pain and despair? Disbelief that the kingdom of heaven is actually near? We can experience so many barriers to proclaiming the Good News that Jesus brings us. And yet, Jesus sends us out to freely proclaim the Good News that the Kingdom of Heaven is near us all, and to freely offer God’s love and all we have received in mercy. May we pray each day for a deeper conversion of our own heart so we can freely give what we ourselves have received from God and always be bearers of the Good News of God’s love and mercy.
