    6 Have no anxiety about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.

    what­ever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is gracious, if there is any excellence and if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. Keep on doing what you have learned and received and heard and seen in me. Then the God of peace will be with you. In the midst of the worries of life Peace is found by focusing your attention on goodness.

    LK 9:1-6

    Jesus called the twelve together and gave them power and authority over all demons and to cure diseases, and he sent them out to proclaim the kingdom of God and to heal.

    He said to them, “Take nothing for your journey, no staff, nor bag, nor bread, nor money—not even an extra tunic. Whatever house you enter, stay there, and leave from there. Wherever they do not welcome you, as you are leaving that town shake the dust off your feet as a testimony against them.”

    They departed and went through the villages, bringing the good news and curing diseases everywhere.

    So, that was the gospel on Wednesday and I couldn’t believe what I was hearing/reading as it didn’t sound very Christ like.
    The priest went on to explain it as so, which still has me confused.
    He said if we don’t turn to God and don’t lean on him then when we need him he will not be there.
    I understand it from the sense that we can’t just then to him when in need (when aren’t we?), but the way the father phrased it left me a bit stumped.
    I would love some thoughts on it.

    Thanks

      Without hearing the homily I can’t reflect on what the priest said, but my catholic study bible has this commentary about the scripture.

      9:3 Take nothing: Trusting in God, the apostles must rely on local hospitality for necessities during their mission (12:2224). This prepares them for leadership in the Church, where they will preach the gospel through a life of spiritual poverty (10:7).

      9:5 shake off the dust: A symbolic act of judgment and curse (10:10-12; Acts 13:51). Those who reject God’s kingdom disqualify themselves from its blessings. See note on Mt 10:14.

    Deacon Philip let the Holy Spirit work through him. Let me be a vessel of the Holy Spirit.

    Acts 8:5–8, 14–17
    Philip went down to the city of Samaria and proclaimed the Christ to them. With one accord, the crowds paid attention to what was said by Philip when they heard it and saw the signs he was doing. For unclean spirits, crying out in a loud voice, came out of many possessed people, and many paralyzed or crippled people were cured. There was great joy in that city.

    Now when the apostles in Jerusalem heard that Samaria had accepted the word of God, they sent them Peter and John, who went down and prayed for them, that they might receive the Holy Spirit, for it had not yet fallen upon any of them; they had only been baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. Then they laid hands on them and they received the Holy Spirit.

    Reflection: Has the Holy Spirit manifest Himself in my life through the outward signs of love of God and neighbor? I pray Lord you would anoint my life my spirit.

    The cross is our victory over sin and death. God’s infinite love can save us all. Pick up your cross and choose God’s love.
