Gospel: Mk 16:15-20
Then he told them, “Go out to the whole world and proclaim the Good News to all creation. The one who believes and is baptized will be saved; the one who refuses to believe will be condemned. Signs like these will accompany those who have believed: in my name they will cast out demons and speak new languages; they will pick up snakes, and if they drink anything poisonous, they will be unharmed; they will lay their hands on the sick, and they will be healed.” So then, after speaking to them, the Lord Jesus was taken up into heaven and took his place at the right hand of God. The Eleven went forth and preached everywhere, while the Lord worked with them and confirmed the message by the signs that accompanied it.
PLACE ALL YOUR WORRIES IN
HIM SINCE HE TAKES CARE IF YOU
We have a Sister in our convent who reached the ripe old age of 103. She never was operated on or stayed in the hospital. When asked about her life’s secret, she answered: “Drink a lot of water and surrender yourself to God.” What a practical and holy advice. She said that in the past she worried a lot about her family, if they are having enough to eat, if anyone is sick among them, if they have work, etc. Then one day, at prayer she seemed to hear God’s voice in her soul saying: “Don’t you think that I love your family more than you can ever love them? So from that time, on she put aside all her worries about her family and entrusted them to God. That is what we should do with our worries. We cannot really do anything to solve our problem by worrying about them. After we have done our best to look for the best solution, we should stop worrying and entrust them to God.
