“Do not prevent him. There is no one who performs a mighty deed in my name who can at the same time speak ill of me. For whoever is not against us is for us.” (MK 9: 39-40)
We are invited to “perform a mighty deed” for our spouses, our children and our friends. We are invited to live in the most amazing way—as a gift of selves. When we “perform a mighty deed in His name,” we connect our actions with Him; we learn from Him, Who is “the way and the truth and the life,” how to protect our relationships and how to grow together in love with Him.
“I am the way and the truth and the life, says the Lord; no one comes to the Father except through me.” (Gospel Acclamation)
