“Simon and those who were with him pursued him and on finding him, said, ‘Everyone is looking for you.’ He told them, ‘Let us go on to the nearby villages that I may preach there also. For this purpose have I come.’ So he went into their synagogues, preaching and driving out demons throughout the whole of Galilee.”
Appreciate the dynamic between Jesus and the apostles here.
Notice the difference between Jesus’ agenda and that of the apostles.
Jesus’ mission embraced all people; he was a mover and a shaker. How about you?
Heritage word—“Let us pray more and more that the kingdom of the Lord may spread everywhere in the hearts of all.”
(St. Julie Billiart, Spiritual Mother of the Sisters of Notre Dame)
