A Reflection on the Gospel of Mark 3:13-19
Mark 16:15 is the tagline on our full logo. The first mission of the Church is to proclaim the gospel. The good news is hope for a world that is consumed by loneliness of materialism.
It’s the good news that there is meaning to it all.
When you walk the same paths as Jesus; you’re given the setting. It becomes an ever more present reality. Jesus is the dawn from on high shall break away the shadows and shine on those who dwell in darkness. Our Lord is the mercy & compassion for the world--and we’re called to proclaim this good news.
I find the Eastern Gate in Jerusalem that was sealed by the Muslims fascinating: as if Jesus is not going to be able to go through it. If He walked through walls after His resurrection, He’ll be able to walk through a sealed Eastern Gate.
Beautiful memories and reflection. It truly does affect a change in the way we understand the Gospels; adding another dimension.
We share in the priesthood of Christ only when the Spirit of our High Priest intercessor is within us. This effect of our Baptism is often overlooked. Without this presence within us, the remaining sacraments are null.
Amen! Thank you for this reflection!
