Jesus’ heart takes pity on the wandering people

The disciples, sent by Jesus to announce his Gospel, return home excited. They are anxious to tell his master what they have done and taught along the way. Jesus is determined to listen to them with calm and invites them to retire “with them to a quiet place to rest a while.” People spoil their whole plan. From all the villages,...

Jesús se apiada de las personas errantes

Los discípulos, enviados por Jesús para anunciar su Evangelio, regresan a casa entusiasmados. Están ansiosos por decirle a su maestro lo que han hecho y enseñado en el camino. Jesús está decidido a escucharlos con calma y les invita a retirarse "con él a un lugar tranquilo para descansar un...

La misión exige un estilo de vida coherente

Jesús no envió a sus discípulos de una manera descuidada. Para colaborar en el gran proyecto del reino de Dios y extender la misión de Jesús, es necesario tener especial cuidado en el estilo de vida personal. Sin un estilo de vida personal coherente, uno puede lograr muchas cosas, pero no podrá...

Wounded Hearts

We do not know her name. She is a tiny woman, lost in the crowd that follows Jesus. She dares not to speak with Jesus as Jairus, the chief of a synagogue, who succeeded in bringing Jesus directly to his house. She would have never been so lucky! Nobody knows she is a woman stigmatized by a secret disease. The scribes have taught her that, if...

Corazones heridos

No sabemos su nombre. Ella es una mujer pequeña, perdida entre la multitud que sigue a Jesús. Ella no se atreve a hablar con Jesús como Jairo, el jefe de la sinagoga, quien logró llevarse a Jesús directamente hasta su casa. ¡Ella nunca habría tenido tanta suerte! Nadie sabe que es una mujer...
