Jesus summoned the Twelve and gave them power and authority over all demons and to cure diseases, and He sent them to proclaim the Kingdom of God and to heal the sick.

He said to them, “TAKE NOTHING FOR THE JOURNEY, NEITHER WALKING STICK, NOR SACK, NOR FOOD, NOR MONEY, AND LET NO ONE TAKE A SECOND TUNIC.  WHATEVER HOUSE YOU ENTER, STAY THERE AND LEAVE FROM THERE.  AND AS FOR THOSE WHO DO NOT WELCOME YOU, WHEN YOU LEAVE THAT TOWN, SHAKE THE DUST FROM YOUR FEET IN TESTIMONY AGAINST THEM.”

Then they set out and went from village to village proclaiming the good news and curing diseases everywhere.

From the Holy Gospel of St. Luck 9: 1-6

HAVE YOU BEEN OBEDIENT?

Our One Minute Wisdom for Today:

wisdom 091515

In the days when Christ was in the flesh, HE OFFERED PRAYERS AND SUPPLICATIONS WITH LOUD CRIES AND TEARS TO THE ONE WHO WAS ABLE TO SAVE HIM FROM DEATH, AND HE WAS HEARD BECAUSE OF HIS REVERENCE.  SON THOUGH HE WAS, HE LEARNED OBEDIENCE FROM WHAT HE SUFFERED; AND WHEN HE WAS MADE PERFECT, HE BECAME THE SOURCE OF ETERNAL SALVATION FOR ALL WHO OBEY HIM.

From the book of Hebrews 5: 7-9

+++

Reflections:

  1.  Do we still pray?
  2. How and to whom do we pray?
  3. If Jesus prayed to His Father, should we also be praying like Him?

OWN TREASURES IN HEAVEN

Our One Minute Wisdom for Today:

wisdom 081715

A young man approached Jesus and said, “TEACHER, WHAT GOOD MUST I DO TO GAIN ETERNAL LIFE?”

He answered him, “Why do you ask me about the good?  There is only One who is good.  If you wish to enter into life, keep the commandments.”

He asked Him, “Which ones?” And Jesus replied, “You shall not kill; you shall not commit adultery; you shall not steal; you shall not bear false witness; honor your father and your mother; and you shall love your neighbor as yourself.”

The young man said to Him, “All of these I have observed.  What do I still lack?”  Jesus said to him, “IF YOU WISH TO BE PERFECT, GO, SELL WHAT YOU HAVE AND GIVE TO THE POOR, AND YOU WILL HAVE TREASURE IN HEAVEN. THEN COME, FOLLOW ME.”

When the young man heard this statement, he went away sad, for he had many possessions.

-From the Gospel of Matthew 19:16-22

+++

Reflections:

*Do we see ourselves as the young man?

*Do we wish to attain eternal life?

*Are we willing to give up our earthly possessions and desires to attain such?

*Are we willing to follow Jesus?

You deserve eternal life,
