Gospel

Mt 10:1-7


And he called to him his twelve disciples and gave them authority over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal every disease and every infirmity. The names of the twelve apostles are these: first, Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother; James the son of Zeb´edee, and John his brother; Philip and Bartholomew; Thomas and Matthew the tax collector; James the son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus; Simon the Cananaean, and Judas Iscariot, who betrayed him.

These twelve Jesus sent out, charging them, “Go nowhere among the Gentiles, and enter no town of the Samaritans, but go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. And preach as you go, saying, ‘The kingdom of heaven is at hand.’

The Healing Question

Welcome back to Radical and Relevant where every day we look at the reading of the day, the Gospel of the day to inspire us. We look at the genius of Catholicism. We look at the genius of the Gospels. We look at the genius of Jesus. Today's reading is from the Gospel of Matthew 10:1-7. And Jesus called to him 12 disciples and gave them authority over unclean spirits, to cast them out and to heal every disease and every infirmity. The names of the Twelve Apostles are these: first, Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew, his brother, James, the son of Zebedee, and John, his brother, Philip, and Bartholomew, Thomas, and Matthew, the tax collector, James, the son of Alphyus, and Thaddeus, Simon, and Judas Iscariot, who betrayed him. These 12 Jesus sent out, charging them, "Go nowhere among the Gentiles and enter no town of the Samaritans, but go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel and preach as you go saying, 'The kingdom of heaven is at hand.'" What jumps out at you today? I think it's great to read the Gospel of the day and just allow the Spirit to guide you to a word or a phrase or an idea. The word that struck me today was heal. Jesus had this incredible power to heal, and he gave this power to his disciples. And for some reason, this word has just been-- it's been on my mind a lot lately. I feel like I go into a lot of situations, and there's a lot of people in need of healing and not necessarily physical healing but lots of different types of healing. And Jesus spent a lot of his time healing people. And so it is a great human need. And so maybe today is a chance to reflect on, "Okay. What kind of healing are you in need of? When is the last time you asked Jesus to heal you in that way?" We're all in need of healing. And by being mindful of our need for healing, we'll approach other people differently because even though we may not know what their need for healing is, they have a need for healing. We all do. And so we have a massive need for God. And it's important to remind ourselves of that from time to time. Have an amazing day. Remember, don't just be yourself. Be the very best version of yourself, all that God created you to be.
