Liturgical day: Wednesday 7th in Ordinary Time

Gospel text (Mk 9,38-40): John said to Jesus, «Master, we saw someone who drove out demons by calling upon your name, and we tried to forbid him because he does not belong to our group». Jesus answered, «Do not forbid him, for no one who works a miracle in my name can soon after speak evil of me». John said to Jesus, «Master, we saw someone who drove out demons by calling upon your name, and we tried to forbid him because he does not belong to our group». Jesus answered, «Do not forbid him, for no one who works a miracle in my name can soon after speak evil of me. For whoever is not against us is for us».

Today Jesus is asking us to open our hearts and arms to every man and woman of good will. There are many people doing good things although they may have not received our faith.

-Who works for good is already on the path of good: he will find Jesus there. Let's not bar the path!
