Jesus instructs and sends his disciples to proclaim the Kingdom of Heaven

Thursday of the Fourteenth Week in Ordinary Time
Gospel text
Mt 10:7-15
Jesus said to his Apostles: “As you go, make this proclamation: ‘The Kingdom of heaven is at hand.’"
Gospel's Commentary
Today we go deeper into the "apostle’s mission". What is there to do? "Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy, drive out demons” That seems difficult and even "old-fashioned". But it is certainly not! Jesus speaks to all of us and for all times. - Let us read Christ’s words with a moral code. "Heal": let us encourage and dialogue with those morally suffering; "Raise": let us lead, let us accompany towards the Grace of God (Sacraments); "Cleanse": let us radiate a good atmosphere, let us raise the temperature; "Drive out demons": let us give an example and let us dialogue by showing the ways of truth and good, and thus, let us free ourselves from diabolical (sometimes "too fashionable") ties.
