THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
Being a follower of Jesus means to be "sent out." Our spiritual lives
ought to be visible on the outside through our actions and dealings with
others. The disciples are sent in twos for companionship but also as a
team; one person cannot have all the gifts and there is support in
working with another.
We might interpret the many demands that they cast out as all those
things in the world that are not of the Spirit, the injustices in our
world. Jesus sends the disciples out to work for a better world, to
bring move love, compassion, and peace to those that they encounter.
They go and urge people to repent, to turn around. This is one of the
goals of their mission and Jesus’ mission: to turn the world around.
Jesus ’ instructions to shake the dust from their feet when they feel
unwelcome may seem harsh at first. We too may fear rejection and when we
experience it, it can leave us feeling exhausted and upset. Perhaps the
message here is to free ourselves and move on; to not let our
disappointment and upset control our lives because if we do we lose our
freedom, it holds us back and it starts to define us. In the midst of
that experience, our true mission can become lost. As we prepare to
welcome Pope Francis to Ireland, let us go out and bring joy and hope to
those we encounter.
"You might be the only gospel which people read."
