Reflection on the WORD
Dear friend in the Lord,
Signs of Strong Faith: In today’s Gospel, Jesus commissioned His disciples to proclaim the Good News of Salvation to all peoples. Those of us who embrace the Gospel of Jesus will have hearts that are free from fears, insecurities and envy. Jesus will fill our hearts with His Presence and Peace.
Msgr Philip Heng, S.J.
Jesus showed himself to the Eleven said to them, ‘Go out to the whole world; proclaim the gospel to all creation. Whoever believes and is baptised will be saved; whoever does not believe will be condemned.
‘These are the signs that will be associated with believers: in my name they will cast out devils; they will have the gift of tongues; they will pick up snakes in their hands and be unharmed should they drink deadly poison; they will lay their hands on the sick, who will recover.’
