HIS HEART WAS MOVED WITH PITY FOR THEM

09 Feb

Today’s Gospel Reading: Mark 6:30-34 – 4th ORDINARY WEEK: Saturday, 9 February 2019

When He disembarked and saw the vast crowd, His heart was moved with pity for them, for they were like sheep without a shepherd; and He began to teach them many things (Mark 6:34).

On a level deeper than verbal instruction, Jesus gives direction to our individual and parish lives through His Spirit. To the extent that a community is open to the Lord, it will receive direction from Him not in a thunderclap but through prayerful consensus.

He is the great high priest who connects us into the life of the Father and into the Father’s design for creation. Through Jesus, our parishes and individual lives participate in the great drama of salvation history.

The great work of Jesus continues in our daily and seemingly uneventful lives.
