HARVEST OF JOY AND GOD’S LOVE(Mt 9:35 - 10:1,5,6-8; Douay-Rheims Bible). Saturday, December 3, 2022.

“And Jesus went about all the cities, and towns, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every disease, and every infirmity. And seeing the multitudes, He had compassion on them: because they were distressed, and lying like sheep that have no shepherd. Then He saith to His disciples, The harvest indeed is great, but the labourers are few. Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that He send forth labourers into His harvest.

“AND having called His twelve disciples together, He gave them power over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of diseases, and all manner of infirmities. These twelve Jesus sent: commanding them, saying: Go ye not into the way of the Gentiles, and into the city of the Samaritans enter ye not. But go ye rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. And going, preach, saying: The kingdom of heaven is at hand. Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, cast out devils: freely have you received, freely give.”

‭‭ My dearest beloved brethren, every one of us is being called to be a harvester; ie, a laborer called to harvest for the Lord. Each one of us can reach a corner of the harvest field that is accessible to no one else. These include each one’s family, neighbors, work colleagues and others who come into our lives. We should not shy away from our calling because we may be the only persons who bring Jesus with His healing and compassion into their lives.

There are so many people who need to hear the message of love and compassion in their lives today.

Lord, please show us the harvest field and give us the grace to be diligent in harvesting for You according to Your taste and Will, in the Mighty Name of Jesus Christ I pray. Amen.

You’re harvesting plentifully for the Lord; He will also give you plentifully with His generous and compassionate mind and graces, dear diligent laborers in the Lord’s harvest field.

In today’s Bible reading as well as in the entire gospel Jesus is seen engaging with vigilant eyes and ears to the cry of the suffering world. To the world, Jesus was the compassionate one, bringing balm to the wounded places of their lives.

Lord, the cries of the poor and broken hearted are evident in the mass migration daily beamed into our living rooms. Please Lord help us not to forget that You summon us. today, to be Your eyes, Your ears and Your hands of compassion. May we respond with loving compassion to all who come to us today and everyday of our lives, in the Mighty Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth I pray. Amen.

Be courageous and fearless in the Lord; for God is with you. You’re blessed; remain blessed!!!
