Weekly Devotion – June 26th

In this week’s Gospel, Jesus tells the Apostles that as they go out to spread the Word of God, people may respond with opposition and dissent. While this was a warning of what was ahead of the twelve, it was also a statement that they must each carry their own cross just as Jesus did. To share in the work of Jesus was a privilege, just as we are called to live as disciples of Jesus.

We pray together: St. Jude, at the Last Supper you sat and watched as Jesus offered the sacrifice of the first Eucharist. As I partake in this gift, strengthen in me a sense of gratitude.
