Brothers and Sisters
Throughout his ministry, Jesus responded to and addressed the needs around him. In our weekend readings we hear of his early teaching and confronting evil with authority through an exorcism. We recognize his profound actions as miracles. We, too, are called to respond to the needs around us with compassion. We rely on him for the support we need to address what we see, including dark and difficult issues. Doing that is a kind of miracle in itself! Let us continue to show the love and care of Christ to all we encounter!
