Reflection for Friday September 16, Saints Cornelius, Pope, and Cyprian, Bishop, Martyrs; Luke 8:1-3

Gospel: Luke 8:1-3
Jesus journeyed from one town and village to another, preaching and proclaiming the good news of the Kingdom of God. Accompanying him were the twelve and some women who had been cured of evil spirits and infirmities, Mary, called Magdalene, from whom seven demons had gone out, Joanna, the wife of Herod’s steward Chuza, Susanna, and many others who provided for them out of their resources.

Reflection:
Do you want to follow Jesus?

As an itinerant preacher and healer Jesus was always with a group of people: they were His followers and perhaps as His logistical support system as well. They were always there for Jesus ever ready to help and support Him in whatever way possible.

Who does Jesus represents today? It’s anybody who proclaims and lives the teachings of Jesus. He could be your friend, he could be your father, mother, brother, priest, pastor and anyone who faithfully follows Jesus.  

Anyone of us can follow Jesus nobody in fact is being prevented to follow Him. Why? Because when you decide to follow Jesus your life will begin to have a direction. Your perspective about life will change as well! This is the miracle that occurs when someone decides to follow Him.

You will also be cured of anything that ails your most especially ailments about our mind and emotion. This is the miracle that occurs when a person decides to faithfully follow Jesus.

Are you not yet tired of living your life for this world alone? Why not reinvigorate your life with the presence of Jesus by deciding to follow Him? – Marino J. Dasmarinas
