Proper Living In The Faith!
When we look at the thirty three years Jesus lived upon the Earth, in only three do we receive any detail of in the Holy Scriptures. Of the four Gospels, we find Our Lord teaching, preaching and healing. Pope John Paul ll declared before He died, that we were living in a New Era of Evangelization. The Pontiff stated that the Good News of the teaching, preaching and healing of Jesus needed to be shared with all mankind in a new way.
In today's Gospel, we find Jesus giving a new commission to His Disciples, to go out to all the world, and share the Good News. "Take a walking stick - but no food, no sack, no money in their belts." The Disciples were to rely completely upon God's Holy Providence. So they went out preaching, healing, and casting many kinds of demons. The sick upon whom they laid hands, were cured. When are hearts and minds are one again with God, so follows the body. The Holy Balance we seek comes only from the Lord. And it begins with correct teaching. Proper instructions in the faith yields to proper living in the faith. Pray for the Lord to raise up new and powerful teachers of the Holy Catholic Faith.
May we learn from the Holy Apostles, in giving up our strong attachment to material goods.
Entrusting you to the care of Our Lady,
