“So they went off and preached repentance. The Twelve drove out many demons, and they anointed with oil many who were sick and cured them.”
How do you think the apostles felt as they went off on mission after hearing Jesus’ direction?
When have you felt empowered by God to carry out a difficult task?
How has that empowerment affected your faith in God’s presence and care for you?
Heritage word—“Jesus knew how necessary and beneficial labor is for us, how difficult it often is, what a penance at times, and how heavy a yoke under the weight of which we moan. By His example He wished to encourage, strengthen, and comfort us; to give us a love for work, to ennoble work and render it meritorious.”
(Mother Mary Antonie, 4th Superior General of the Sisters of Notre Dame)
