Reflections GOSPEL: Matthew 9:3---10:8

This gospel reading gives us a glimpse into the heart of Jesus. When he saw the crowds who had come to hear him speak, we read that his heart was moved with pity “because they were troubled and abandoned, like sheep without a shepherd.” Jesus couldn’t leave them like that. He had to do something! So he gathered helpers, the apostles, and sent them out to care for the people. He told them: “Without cost you have received; without cost you are to give.”

1.) The month of June is traditionally celebrated as “the month of the Sacred Heart.” The Sacred Heart of Jesus is a devotion. This devotion reminds us that Jesus loves us, and wants to care for us. He wants us to love and care for one another.

2.) How are we each a sheep in the flock of Jesus? How can we be like Jesus and let our hearts be moved with pity for others in need?
