DGeMs- Daily Gospel eMessage

Dear Friend in the Lord,

Jesus’ Divine Power: In today’s Gospel, Jesus cured all who were sick, expelled devils and proclaimed the Good News of Salvation.  Ponder on, “God’s Compassionate Love cures and heals us physically, emotionally and spiritually, and offers us an Eternal Life of Happiness.  Why do so many people still turn away from Jesus?  What about us?”

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Mark 1:32-39

At evening, after sunset, they brought to Jesus all who were sick and those who were possessed by devils. The whole town came crowding round the door, and he cured many who were sick with diseases of one kind or another; he also drove out many devils, but he would not allow them to speak, because they knew who he was.

In the morning, long before dawn, he got up and left the house and went off to a lonely place and prayed there. Simon and his companions set out in search of him, and when they found him they said, ‘Everybody is looking for you.’

He answered, ‘Let us go elsewhere, to the neighbouring country towns, so that I can proclaim the message there too, because that is why I came.’ And he went all through Galilee, preaching in their synagogues and driving out devils.
