DG BookGospel: Mark 3:13-19
Then Jesus went up into the hill country, and called those he wanted, and they came to him. He appointed Twelve
to be with him, and he called them ‘apostles.’ He wanted to send them out to preach; and he gave them authority
to drive out demons. These are the Twelve: Simon, to whom he gave the name Peter; James, son of Zebedee, and

John his brother, to whom he gave the name Boanerges, which means ‘men of thunder’; Andrew, Philip, Bartholomew, Matthew,
Thomas, James son of Alpheus, Thaddeus, Simon the Cananean, and Judas Iscariot, the one who betrayed him.

 

Reflection:

 

There is something deeply noble about David, a nobility
that arises from a fierce fidelity to the Lord. Even when he had
his enemy (Saul) at his feet, he spares him—for the sole reason
that to raise his hand against the Lord’s anointed is equivalent to
raising one’s hand against the Lord Himself. However, this
would not prevent him from course-correcting Saul. In the
Gospel, Jesus calls and appoints the apostles. Yet the history of
the Church shows that not all their successors have remained
faithful to the Lord. This must give us pause. We must respect
the authority given by God; but it shall not stop us from
pointing out their errors when they digress. And we shall do
it as David did—fearlessly, but respectfully and lovingly. To
judge them ultimately must be left to God who alone knows
human hearts in depth.
