About Today Readings

Ezra 9:5-9. Tobit 13:2, 4, 6-8. Luke 9:1-6.
Blessed be God who lives forever – Tobit 13:2, 4, 6-8
‘He sent them out to proclaim the kingdom of God and to heal’

We are co-workers with Jesus. Though not all are called to preach, all are called to witness by our lives. The Twelve were to take nothing for the journey and we, ourselves, are encouraged to trust that God will provide. He can astonish us when we really trust in him.

Jesus does not ask if I am qualified, he asks if I am available. Am I ready to respond to Jesus’ call to live in the freedom of God’s kingdom, to experience his healing love?

Doing the work of Christ is simpler than it seems, for it is to be faithful in the small things. It is to be hands to raise the fallen, feet to seek the lost, ears to listen to the lonely, mouth to comfort the distressed and presence to sit in silence. Lord, make me a channel of your peace.
