Mk 6: 7-13

He called the twelve and began to send them out two by two, and gave them authority over the unclean spirits. He ordered them to take nothing for their journey except a staff; no bread, no bag, no money in their belts; but to wear sandals and not to put on two tunics. He said to them, “Wherever you enter a house, stay there until you leave the place. If any place will not welcome you and they refuse to hear you, as you leave, shake off the dust that is on your feet as a testimony against them.” So they went out and proclaimed that all should repent. They cast out many demons, and anointed with oil many who were sick and cured them.

Righteous Power  

When given a righteous power, have faith that when things are done the right way, it will all work out.  It sounds easy enough, but having trust in the Lord is one of the most difficult things to do.  That righteous power could be a skill or gift you have been blessed with.  For others, it could be a responsibility to which you are entrusted.  Be humble with these gifts.  They are as important to others as they may be to you, and the Lord will guide you and care for you, as He has entrusted you with their care.  During the next two weeks I celebrate the birthdays for two of my four children, and as a father I consider my children the utmost responsibility. It may not be as newsworthy as driving out a demon, but considering the possibilities of their respective futures I consider them no less important. There’s always worry and concern, offer up those desolations; if you can follow Jesus’s directions the outcomes can be incredible.

Prayer

O Christ Jesus, when all is darkness and we feel our weakness and helplessness, give us the sense of Your presence, Your love, and Your strength. Help us to have perfect trust in Your protecting love and strengthening power, so that nothing may frighten or worry us, for, living close to You, we shall see Your hand, Your purpose, Your will through all things.

— St. Ignatius of Loyola

In the Power of the Holy Spirit

This simple narrative contains the entire pattern of our life in Christ: that of being called and sent with the power of the Holy Spirit.

  • When my smile or hug or simple act of acceptance dispels for another person the lie that they are not loved.
  • When I speak the truth and it leads others out of fear and into deeper compassion.
  • When I help others to forgive and seek forgiveness.
  • I am given the power to heal:
  • When I am trustworthy.
  • When I forgive or seek forgiveness.

When I recognize that it is not people with different abilities that are broken, but the structures, including churches, that are designed to keep them out.
