Jesus sent them out to proclaim the Kingdom of God. "Take nothing for the journey - neither walking stick, nor sack, nor food, nor money."
Life is a journey, a sacred mission planned before we were born. God equips us with talents, strengthens us with virtues and hardens us with pain. He provides us with daily bread - not too much as to forget Him, nor too little as to hate Him. (1st Reading)
JOURNEY OF LIFE
-Life is but a stopping place, a pause in what is to be,
A resting place along the road to sweet eternity.
-We have different journeys, different paths along the way,
We all are meant to do some things but never meant to stay.
-Our destination is a place far greater than we know,
For some the journey is quick, for some it is slow.
-And when the journey finally ends, we will claim a great reward:
Everlasting peace together with our Lord.
