Jesus chooses and calls the twelve apostles

Jesus chooses and calls the twelve apostles
Friday of the Second Week in Ordinary Time
Gospel text
Mk 3:13-19
Jesus went up the mountain and summoned those whom he wanted and they came to him. He appointed Twelve, whom he also named Apostles, that they might be with him and he might send them forth to preach.
Gospel's Commentary
Today is a great day: Jesus chooses his first twelve Apostles. We witness the birth of the Church today. These Apostles will live with Jesus and will be sent away to preach the Good News. They follow Jesus so that they can bring all men and women to Him: Jesus chooses all men and all women without exception. — You too, are a “full member” of the Church. You too, can help this Church reach all men and women.
