Good News Inspiration for Daily Life
Bulletin Insert for July 11, 2021.
Description: In the Gospel of Mark 6:7-13, Jesus teaches us about trust. If we’re to fulfill our calling as God’s instruments of love in this world, if we’re to fulfill our calling as missionaries of the Good News, we must trust God and the resources that he provides. This is explained in a reflection for a bulletin insert for the 15th Sunday of Ordinary Time. God will always provide exactly what we need when we need it, even though it doesn’t always seem sufficient.
Every Mass ends with a re-commissioning rite for the calling we all have. The final blessing is a sending forth after we’ve been renewed in our relationship with Jesus. His presence in the Word and in the Eucharist and in the Church community re-energizes us (when we pay attention) to boldly go and do all that he asks of us. Through the priest, Jesus sends us into the world to be the visible proof that he is real and that he’s alive and that he cares. With Jesus, and in him and through him, we are all evangelizers who can make a difference in the world.
