Reflection for Friday January 20, Second Week in Ordinary Time; Mark 3:13-19

Gospel Mark 3:13-19
Jesus went up the mountain and summoned those whom he wanted and they came to him. He appointed Twelve, whom he also named Apostles, that they might be with him and he might send them forth to preach and to have authority to drive out demons: He appointed the Twelve: Simon, whom he named Peter; James, son of Zebedee, and John the brother of James, whom he named Boanerges, that is, sons of thunder; Andrew, Philip, Bartholomew, Matthew, Thomas, James the son of Alphaeus; Thaddeus, Simon the Cananean, and Judas Iscariot who betrayed him.

Reflection:
Do you have regular solemn moments of reflection on your life? Solemn moment of reflections concerning your relationship with God, your family and an honest to goodness assessment of your life’s true purpose in this world.

Jesus had those solemn moments every now and then He would go to the mountain primarily to pray and commune with God. Then after His private moments in the mountain He would make important decisions. In the gospel, after going to the mountain He called and appointed the twelve apostles.   

You should also have your own private moments with God for you to reflect and know your real purpose in this fragile world. You should not allow yourself to be eaten by the frenetic pace of this world. Otherwise before you know it you are not anymore in touch  with God and God has no more say in your life.

This is very dangerous because the moment that God is not anymore in your life that’s also when the devil comes in to destroy your life. – Marino J. Dasmarinas
