Mark 3:13-19 Reflection
Has Jesus summoned you? Have you turned towards him in conversation? Perhaps as you walk with Jesus, you have certainty that He is walking with you. In faith, do you believe in the gift of His authority within you? Consider that after the Apostles moment of summoning you have two millennia more history. If you have not already, push aside any doubts that in this moment our Glorified Christ has also asked you be and do with Him.
Mark 3 New Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition (NRSVCE)
Jesus Appoints the Twelve
13 He went up the mountain and called to him those whom he wanted, and they came to him. 14 And he appointed twelve, whom he also named apostles, to be with him, and to be sent out to proclaim the message, 15 and to have authority to cast out demons. 16 So he appointed the twelve: Simon (to whom he gave the name Peter); 17 James son of Zebedee and John the brother of James (to whom he gave the name Boanerges, that is, Sons of Thunder); 18 and Andrew, and Philip, and Bartholomew, and Matthew, and Thomas, and James son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus, and Simon the Cananaean, 19 and Judas Iscariot, who betrayed him.
Thank you for meditating on this daily Gospel reading and considering this reflection on Mark 3:13-19.
