Reflection for Wednesday July 5, Thirteenth Week in Ordinary Time: Matthew 8:28-34

Gospel: Matthew 8:28-34
When Jesus came to the territory of the Gadarenes, two demoniacs who were coming from the tombs met him. They were so savage that no one could travel by that road. They cried out, “What have you to do with us, Son of God? Have you come here to torment us before the appointed time?” Some distance away a herd of many swine was feeding. The demons pleaded with him, “If you drive us out, send us into the herd of swine.” And he said to them, “Go then!” They came out and entered the swine, and the whole herd rushed down the steep bank into the sea where they drowned. The swineherds ran away, and when they came to the town they reported everything, including what had happened to the demoniacs. Thereupon the whole town came out to meet Jesus, and when they saw him they begged him to leave their district.

Reflection:
Are demons for real?

Demons are for real it’s just around us waiting to pounce upon us the moment they see that our faith in Jesus is weak. But it’s not anymore the typical frightening figure for it has also evolved with time. It disguises itself now in so many ways that we can hardly recognize it until it captures us and eventually destroy us.

It could disguise itself within us through our evil thoughts that comes to us every once in a while. For example the feeling of lusting after someone even if it’s immoral, we will not be able to recognize it until it’s too late already.

In the secular world that we’re in the devil uses a lot of worldly things to keep our attention away from God.  This is the reason why many of us become bigtime sinners for the simple reason that we’ve allowed the devil to capture us. 

But let us not be fearful because there’s somebody who can easily defeat these demons and it’s no other that Jesus. So we should always be connected to Jesus by means of having an active prayer life and we must always ask His help and guidance. For the simple reason that Jesus is simply a prayer away from us. – Marino J.
