St. Agnes

Mk 3: 13-19

He went up the mountain and called to him those whom he wanted, and they came to him. And he appointed twelve, whom he also named apostles, to be with him, and to be sent out to proclaim the message, and to have authority to cast out demons.

So he appointed the twelve: Simon (to whom he gave the name Peter); James son of Zebedee and John the brother of James (to whom he gave the name Boanerges, that is, Sons of Thunder); and Andrew, and Philip, and Bartholomew, and Matthew, and Thomas, and James son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus, and Simon the Cananaean, and Judas Iscariot, who betrayed him.

Then he went home.

Peace That Comes From God

In the Gospel reading, Jesus calls the disciples, who came from a wide variety of places and life experiences.

Jesus came for all.

In scripture, Jesus is outside in nature quite a lot. He’s on the sea, up on a mountain, in the desert, and the wilderness. Pope Francis in recent homilies has encouraged us to “look up” and perhaps more outward. To look beyond our immediate sense of time and place to something more, beyond the immediate cultural, political divisions in our world including within our Catholic Church to perhaps gain a larger perspective that how God thinks is not how we humans always think. Perhaps we are to look up for a greater sense of light and connection with the earth to find an eternal peace which only comes from God.

Amid this Martin Luther King holiday week, we pray to seek the truth and justice that enables us to love all our neighbors in a deeper way. We pray for the mindfulness that all of us form the Body of Christ. We are representing the diverse gifts of the Holy Spirit as we pursue God’s truth, which starts and ends in, for, and with Christ.

Jesus comes for all of us.

Prayer

Lamb of God you take away the sins of the World. Have mercy on us. Lamb of God you take away the sins of the world, Have mercy on us. Lamb of God, you take away the sins of the world… Grant us peace!

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.
