Gospel: Luke 6:12-16
“He chose twelve of them to be apostles”
A Few Good Men. Yes, Jesus named the twelve apostles he chose to teach and train to continue to minister to others when he goes back to heaven. Jesus did not just chose anyone . We see that Jesus prepares himself. “He went out to the mountain to pray, and continued all night in prayer to God.”
We often think of the twelve as the only disciples of Jesus. He actually had hundreds and more other disciples. But out of them he chose twelve for “Coaching” and “Mentoring”. And out of these are the many men and women in the church we encountered today who continues to teach not just to religious , the lay people too! For we are called to spread the good news!
Today, we honour and pray for our Priest, Nuns, Missionaries and Lay leaders who through their YES and self-giving enabled us to receive God.
