DGeMs- Daily Gospel eMessage

Dear Friend in the Lord,

Clamour for Jesus: In today’s Gospel, great crowds of Jews were clamouring for Jesus to cure, expel demons and proclaim the Good News of Salvation.  Ponder on, “When we are with believers who ‘clamour’ for Jesus, do we experience a renewal of our faith, hope and love for Him?  Value more deeply the community of believers.”

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Mark 3:7-12

Jesus withdrew with his disciples to the lakeside, and great crowds from Galilee followed him. From Judaea, and from Jerusalem, and from Idumaea and Transjordan and the region of Tyre and Sidon, great numbers who had heard of all he was doing came to him.

And he asked his disciples to have a boat ready for him because of the crowd, to keep him from being crushed. For he had cured so many that all who were afflicted in any way were crowding forward to touch him. And the unclean spirits, whenever they saw him, would fall down before him and shout, ‘You are the Son of God!’ But he warned them strongly not to make him known.
