DG Book

Gospel: Matthew 9:32-38
As they were going away, some people brought to Jesus a man who was dumb, because he was possessed by a demon. When the demon was driven out, the dumb man began to speak. The crowds were astonished and said, “Nothing like this has ever been seen in Israel.” But the Pharisees said, “He drives away demons with the help of the prince of demons.”Jesus went around all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming the good news of the kingdom; and he cured every sickness and disease. When he saw the crowds, he was moved with pity; for they were harassed  and  helpless,  like  sheep  without  a  shepherd. Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is abundant, but the workers are only few. Ask the master of the

harvest to send workers to gather his harvest.”

Reflections

“Seeing the crowd, Jesus was moved with pity.”This  gospel  reading  may  be divided  into  two  subjects:  one that concludes the healing acti- vities of Jesus and the other in- troduces the context for Jesus’ next  set  of  discourse,  that  is, the  instruction  to  the  twelve. In going to places to cure every sickness and disease, Jesus was motivated  by  compassion  and mercy. The same intent promp- ted  Him  to  send  disciples  to continue His messianic ministry. He saw the people needing care and direction, and he acted on it. Jesus is sensitive and atten- tive  to  people’s  deepest  need and cry. He hears them and sees them  in  their  suffering  that  is why  He  was  moved  with  pity. This  poses  a  challenge  to  us Christians if we are to live out the gospel message. To be sensitive and attentive to the sufferings of people means orienting our- selves and sharing a part of us to them. At times this is not easy. What is preventing us to see or respond to the need and abuses around us? What could be stop- ping us to lend a voice to those who are maltreated and exploi- ted? We pray for the grace to be more caring and compassionate.
