From today’s Gospel: ‘And he went up into the hills, and called to him those whom he desired; and they came to him. And he appointed twelve, to be with him, and to be sent out …’

Here is the core, the heart of discipleship, ‘to be with Him, and to be sent out’. Today, perhaps we can find an opportunity to reflect deeply on these words. We can be with Him in any circumstance, however busy, in stillness; and in that spirit of stillness and quiet we can be ‘sent out’ for whatever work the Lord has for us to do. May God bless you this day.
