I am with you always until the end of this world - Jesus (Matthew 28:20).

Preach the Word in season and out of season reproving, rebuking or advising always with patience and providing instructions (2 Timothy 4:2).

Do not fear, Mary, for God has looked kindly on you (Luke 1:30).

Anything worth doing is worth doing poorly. - G. K. Chesterton

My Gospel Reflection for June 28, Monday: Matthew 8:18-22

My Reflections:
In the first sentence of the gospel it would appear that Jesus was trying to evade the crowd that has been following Him for healing. But no the situation is not as what it appears it was rather time for Jesus to move-on and share His gift of preaching and healing with other places. Let us remember that He is an itinerant preacher; as much as possible He wanted to share His many super natural gifts with as many people as He can.

Each of us has been blessed by God with gifts that He wants us to share, it may be the gift of preaching, it may be the gift of writing about God it may be the gift of empathy and concern, it may be the gift of attentively listening to those who are burdened, it may be the gift of material wealth and the like.

Let us generously share these blessings let us not hoard it for ourselves. ...
