DG Book

Gospel: Luke 8:1-3
Jesus walked through towns and countryside, prea­ching and giving the good news of the kingdom of God. The Twelve followed him, and also some women,
who had been healed of evil spirits and diseases: Mary called Magdalene, who had been freed of seven demons; Joanna, wife of Chuza, Herod’s steward;
Suzanna; and others, who provided for them out of their own funds.

REFLECTION:
When men follow Jesus, much are being sacrificed. They leave their jobs and families. One can say, however, that even if these men are away,
there are mothers and wives left at home. Their houses and children are not totally abandoned. The bigger challenge is when mo­thers and wives also follow Jesus.
Our Gospel shows how women take part of Jesus’ ministry along with their continued responsibi­lities as mothers and wives. Some can even provide funds.
Our churches today are animated by women who go home, cook, do the laundry, and send children to school.
Some go to work and still undertake heavy roles in pari­shes and churches. Yet, they ne­ver take center-stage.
They do not become parish priests or popes. They quietly serve as backbones of God’s work. Without them, our churches would be like motherless children.
