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

Reflection for January 26, Tuesday Saints Timothy and Titus, Bishops; Luke 10:1-9

Gospel: Luke 10:1-9
After this the Lord appointed seventy two others whom he sent ahead of him in pairs to every town and place he intended to visit. He said to them, “The harvest is abundant but the laborers are few; so ask the master of the harvest to send out laborers for his harvest. Go on your way; behold, I am sending you like lambs among wolves.  Carry no money bag, no sack, no sandals and greet no one along the way. Into whatever house you enter, first say, ‘Peace to this household. If a peaceful person* lives there, your peace will rest on him; but if not, it will return to you. Stay in the same house and eat and drink what is offered to you, for the laborer deserves his payment. Do not move about from one house to another. Whatever town you enter and they welcome you, eat what is set before you, cure the sick in it and say to them, ‘The kingdom of God is at hand for you.

What is our mission as a Baptized and Confirmed Catholics? Our mission is to help Jesus propagate His teachings.  

In our Catechism it says that we become official members of the church when we receive the Sacrament of Baptism. Then, our bond with Jesus and the church is further strengthened by our Bishop through the Sacrament of Confirmation.

Having received these two Sacraments, we also now become disciples of Jesus. And like the Seventy two disciples whom He sent to their mission of evangelization. We too are duty bond to prepare the way for Him by sharing the good news of our salvation even if it entails sacrifice and hardship.

There are many who do not know Jesus yet or who have scant knowledge about Jesus. Our mission therefore is to give them a clearer idea about who Jesus is. And this we can do best by our acts of mercy, humility, love and compassion.

We certainly cannot share Jesus if we are quick to judge, if we are full of egotism, if we are not merciful and if we don’t love as Jesus loves. And what is this love of Jesus? It’s an encompassing love, love that forgives no matter how  deep the wound that has been inflicted upon us.  – Marino J. Dasmarinas
