Proclaim this message: “The Kingdom of Heaven is near.”  – Mt 10:7

Reflection.  Love, pray, go, teach — these are the words of Jesus.  He gives us a new view of reality, and we try to respond in a spirit of love.  God’s love is the Good News of the Gospel.  But there are anti-Gospel forces in the world.  The evil one sows seeds of unrest, seeds of hatred.  The Christ-bearer is aware of the enemy at all times, but goes forth without fear.

Prayer.  Lord Jesus, enable me to enjoy the simple things that are so easy to take for granted, so that I may proclaim the Gospel joyfully.
