Serving the Word: 17th September


Luke 8, 1-3:

“Jesus went about from town to town and from village to village, proclaiming and announcing the Good News of the Kingdom of God, accompanied by the Twelve, and by some women, who had been cured of evil spirits and diseases.”


Nowadays, with social media, there seems to be a competition to see who has the most groups, the most Facebook friends and the most followers. Whether you really know them or not, it doesn’t matter.

Jesus surrounds himself with a small group of people with whom it is important to get to know each other, to live together, to share life and faith.

In this core group there are also a few women who collaborate in his mission.

We know how Jesus treats women, how he tries to include them in a society in which men are in charge and women are reduced to a lower level, confined to the home and domestic tasks.

The women who accompany Jesus remind us of many women today who continue to give the best of themselves to serve the Lord and proclaim his Word with tenderness, dedication, courage and to make their way every day in a community in which they are absolutely indispensable in the evangelising mission.

Thank you, Lord, for so many wise and simple women, humble and prophetic, servants with an evangelical spirit, with whom you enrich your Church.

Good day.

Antonio Sanjuán Marín, cmf
