DGeMs- Daily Gospel eMessage

Dear Friend in the Lord,

Twelve Apostles: In today’s Gospel, Jesus appoints His Twelve Apostles; whom He will groom to proclaim the Good News of Salvation.  They are to continue to protect and hand on the Truth to future generations with fidelity.  All died a martyr’s death except Judas Iscariot .  What about our fidelity to the Gospel?

  Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Mark 3:13-19

Jesus went up onto the mountain and summoned those he wanted. So they came to him and he appointed twelve; they were to be his companions and to be sent out to proclaim the message, with power to drive out devils.

And so he appointed the Twelve, Simon to whom he gave the name Peter,

James the son of Zebedee and John the brother of James, to whom he gave the name Boanerges or ‘Sons of Thunder’; Andrew, Philip, Bartholomew, Matthew, Thomas, James the son of Alphaeus, Thaddaeus, Simon the Zealot and Judas Iscariot, the man who was to betray him.
