The Word every day: 7-13 July, 2024

Commentary on the Readings of the Day by Father Giordano Favillini

Sunday, 7/07

Mark 6:5-6

Jesus there could perform no wonders, but only laid hands on a few sick people and healed them there. And he marveled at their unbelief. The wisdom and truth of Jesus’ teachings are universally recognized but few agree to conform their lives to them. Even today Jesus marvels at this practical unbelief .

Monday, 8/07

Matthew 9:18-19

One of the leaders prostrated himself before Jesus and said, “My daughter has died just now ,but come lay your hand on her and she will live.” Jesus got up and followed him. Let us invoke on all our illnesses and moral miseries the hand of Jesus, and our unceasing and convinced prayer will provoke an intervention of the Lord who will not abandon us in our distress, but His nearness will deliver us.

Tuesday, 9/07

Matthew 9:36

In those days Jesus seeing the crowds , neither felt compassion, for they were weary and exhausted like sheep that have no shepherd. This could be a picture of our times, faced with the disorientation and existential emptiness of today ,the Lord stands with a surplus of compassion and mercy, because His Heart wounded with love cannot abandon us in our miseries.

Wednesday, 10/07

Matthew 10:1

At that time, having called His disciples to Himself, Jesus gave them power over unclean spirits to cast them out and heal every disease and infirmity. There is a higher power over all evil in the world. Evil in all its forms , in the face of the saving intervention of Jesus , which is manifested in the sacraments of the Church stops , we must however turn to them to receive deliverance .

Thursday, 11/07

Matthew 19:29

Jesus said, Whoever shall have left houses, or brothers, or sisters, or father, or mother, or children, or fields, for my name’s sake shall receive a hundredfold, and shall inherit eternal life. The Lord asks us to give up what is not really useful for our lives, and He surprisingly and superabundantly gives us what is really good for our souls.

Friday, 12/07

Matthew 10:16

Jesus said to his disciples, “Behold I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves; be therefore prudent as serpents and simple as doves. Gospel prudence is not hesitating or postponing choices or initiatives but acting shrewdly and nonchalantly in doing good and knowing how to change strategy in the face of evil to dangers

Saturday, 13/07

Matthew 10:27

At that time Jesus said, What I say to you in the darkness you say in the light, and what you hear by the ear you proclaim from the terraces. The gospel message is not a doctrine for initiates, for a chosen few, but a proclamation of salvation for all; it is to be proclaimed to every category of people, and each will have its own times of reception and response.
