DG BookGospel: Mark 6:53-56
Having crossed the lake, they came ashore at Gennesaret, where they tied up the boat. As soon as they landed, people
recognized Jesus, and ran to spread the news throughout the countryside. Wherever he was, they brought to him the sick
lying on their mats; and wherever he went, to villages, towns or farms, they laid the sick in the marketplace, and begged
him to let them touch just the fringe of his cloak. And all who touched him were cured.

 

Reflection:

 

Compare the majesty, grandeur, and the awe-inspiring
presence of God in the Ark that Solomon brought to Jerusalem,
with the simplicity, ordinariness, familiarity, down-to-earthiness
Jesus displays in rubbing shoulders with the people
around him! If the Ark evoked fear and trembling, and no one
dared to touch the Ark because touching the Ark could get them
killed, as in the case of Uzzah (2 Sam 6:6-7), we see people milling
around Jesus pleading him to touch them and reaching out
and touching him and getting cured! What we witness is the
true kenosis (Phil. 2:6-8) of God for the sake of us, human beings:
the “I-Am-Who-Am” becoming Emmanuel, “God-with-Us”, the
Ark becoming Flesh, to dwell amidst us as one among us. The
fear-evoking presence of God in the Ark becomes the loveinspiring
touch of God in Christ. How has this kenosis transformed
our lives?

DG BookGospel: Luke 5:1-11
One day, as Jesus stood by the Lake of Gennesaret, with a crowd gathered around him listening to the word of God, he caught sight
of two boats, left at the water’s edge by fishermen, now washing their nets. He got into one of the boats, the one belonging to Simon,
and asked him to pull out a little from the shore. There he sat, and continued to teach the crowd. When he had finished speaking, he said to
Simon, “Put out into deep water and lower your nets for a catch.” Simon replied, “Master, we worked hard all night and caught nothing. But if you say
so, I will lower the nets.” This they did, and caught such a large number of fish that their nets began to break. They signaled their partners in the other
boat to come and help them. They came, and they filled both boats almost to the point of sinking. Upon seeing this, Simon Peter fell at Jesus’ knees,
saying, “Leave me, Lord, for I am a sinful man!” For he and his companions were amazed at the catch they had made, and so were Simon’s partners,
James and John, Zebedee’s sons. Jesus said to Simon, “Do not be afraid. You will catch people from now on.” So they brought their boats to land and
followed him, leaving everything.

 

Reflection:

 

Revelation is always a twinrevelation: who God is and who we
are. Before the vision of the immense grandeur and holiness of God, Isaiah
can only become self-conscious of his own sinfulness. Before the miraculous
catch of fish that Jesus worked, Peter can only murmur: “Leave me, Lord,
for I am a sinful man.” And Paul knows very well that he was so despicable
that he neither merited a visitation from God nor the title apostle.
This self-awareness is invariably a consciousness of the vast gulf
existing between God’s goodness and holiness, and our creatureliness
and sinfulness. Thankfully, within this gulf plays God’s Grace that
transforms us into whom God desires us to be—as it happened with Isaiah,
Paul, and Peter. So, perhaps I should correct myself: Revelation is always
three-pronged: Who God is, who we are, and who we can be, by God’s
Grace.

DG BookCorinthians 15:1-11
Let me remind you, brothers and sisters, of the Good News that I preached to you, and which you received, and
on which, you stand firm. By that gospel, you are saved, provided that you hold to it, as I preached it. Otherwise,
you will have believed in vain. In the first place, I have passed on to you what I, myself, received: that Christ died

DG BookGospel: Mark 6:30-34
The apostles returned and reported to Jesus all they had done and taught. Then he said to them, “Let us go off by
ourselves into a remote place and have some rest.” For there were so many people coming and going that the apostles
had no time even to eat. And they went away in the boat to a secluded area by themselves. But people saw them leaving,

DG BookGospel: Mark 6:14-29
King Herod also heard about Jesus, because his name had become well known. Some people said, “John
the Baptist has been raised from the dead, and that is why miraculous powers are at work in him.” Others thought, “He
is Elijah,” and others, “He is a prophet like the prophets of times past.” When Herod was told of this, he thought, “I had

DG BookGospel: Mark 6:7-13
Jesus then went around the villages, teaching. He called the Twelve to him, and began to send them out two by
two, giving them authority over evil spirits. And he ordered them to take nothing for the journey, except a staff:
no food, no bag, no money in their belts. They were to wear sandals and were not to take an extra tunic.

DG BookGospel: Luke 2:22-40
When the day came for the purification according to the law of Moses, they brought the baby up to Jerusalem,
to present him to the Lord, as it is written in the law of the Lord: Every firstborn male shall be consecrated to God.
And they offered a sacrifice, as ordered in the law of the Lord: a pair of turtledoves or two young pigeons. There
lived in Jerusalem, at this time, a very upright and devout man named Simeon; the Holy Spirit was in him. He looked forward to

DG BookGospel: Mark 5:21-43
Jesus then crossed to the other side of the lake; and while he was still on the shore, a large crowd gathered around him.
Jairus, an official of the synagogue, came up and, seeing Jesus, threw himself at his feet; and begged him earnestly, “My little
daughter is at the point of death. Come and lay your hands on her, so that she may get well and live.” Jesus went with him, and
many people followed, pressing around him. Among the crowd was a woman who had suffered from bleeding for twelve years.

DG BookGospel: Mark 5:1-20
They arrived at the other side of the lake, in the region of the Gerasenes. No sooner did Jesus leave the boat than
he was met by a man with evil spirits, who had come from the tombs. The man lived among the tombs, and no one
could re strain him, even with a chain. He had often been bound with fetters and chains; but he would pull the chains

DG BookGospel: Luke 4:21-30
Then he said to them, “Today, these prophetic words come true, even as you listen.” All agreed with him, and were
lost in wonder, while he spoke of the grace of God. Nevertheless they asked, “Who is this but Joseph’s Son?”
So he said, “Doubtless you will quote me the saying: Doctor, heal yourself! Do here, in your town, what they say you did
