Weekly Reflection

Jesus says, “Do not rejoice that the demons are subject to you, but rejoice instead that your names are written in heaven.” What is this line about? I would suggest to you that it is about humility. You see, Jesus gave his disciples real power to limit the influence of evil spirits, and that power was good. But Jesus did not want his disciples to be distracted by what they could do. This is why he says that they should rejoice that their names were written in heaven. It was a valuable thing for the disciples to drive out demons on earth, but it was even more valuable that God in heaven knew them and cared for them. Understanding this is humility. Humility is a virtue by which we see ourselves in the right perspective. It is a virtue that we need in our world today, because so many factors are trying to convince us that life is about us, about our own successes and importance. There is nothing about humility that says that we should not take satisfaction in what we can do. The disciples should have been pleased that they could drive out demons. But all the things that we do are part of a larger picture, a picture in which God plays a role. Knowing that is humility. You might be gifted as a parent. You should take pride in your ability to guide your children and teach them. But humility reminds you that what your children become is not entirely in your control. Their lives are part of a bigger picture to which you can only contribute. That is why your greatest joy should be to know that God knows your intention and whatever happens, God will stand with you. We should be proud of the things we can do. But it is not really about us. It is about what God can accomplish through the gifts we offer. This is why our greatest joy is, that no matter what happens, we are secure in God’s love.

Children’s Liturgy

Children’s Liturgy As a group we gather in the MacKillop Room, listen to the gospel, sing the Alleluia and discuss what it all means for us as followers of Jesus in 2015. We usually respond to the word in a number of ways- using drama, mediation, song, drawing and creating in a meaningful way. We conclude with Prayers of the Faithful, often sharing our own prayers from the heart with each other. We often receive more spiritual wisdom from the children than that from a lot of adults!!
