Mk 6: 7-13

He called the twelve and began to send them out two by two, and gave them authority over the unclean spirits. He ordered them to take nothing for their journey except a staff; no bread, no bag, no money in their belts; but to wear sandals and not to put on two tunics. He said to them, “Wherever you enter a house, stay there until you leave the place. If any place will not welcome you and they refuse to hear you, as you leave, shake off the dust that is on your feet as a testimony against them.” So they went out and proclaimed that all should repent. They cast out many demons, and anointed with oil many who were sick and cured them.

Our faith is always shared

Jesus sends out the Apostles with nothing except one thing, each other. Our faith is not something in which we walk alone, it’s always in relationship to others. It is not meant to be hoarded individually, but rather it is meant to be shared.  When we choose to belong to each other, we are humbled in knowing that our way is not always the right way, and we are also supported in our mistakes. Above all these things, when we are sent out together on mission, when we and our friends and family look to do God’s will together, then the love that we have for each other shines forth and inspires the world to want to follow the source of that love, Jesus. This action of love will convince more people to follow Jesus than every homily ever given.  —Alex Hale, SJ, is a Jesuit scholastic from the Midwest Province studying philosophy at Loyola University Chicago.  

Prayer

Prayer Holiest of Trinities, who is in perfect relationship with each other and yet united as one, help us to build friendships of love with others so that we too may share in the joy of giving our hearts and our lives to others. Amen. —Alex Hale, SJ

Welcome to JesuitPrayer.org

Ignatian spirituality reminds us that God pursues us in the routines of our home and work life, and in the hopes and fears of life's challenges. The founder of the Jesuits, Saint Ignatius of Loyola, created the Spiritual Exercises to deepen our relationship with Christ and to move our contemplation into service. May this prayer site anchor your day and strengthen your resolve to remember what truly matters.
