Fr Peter points that it is not only the twelve whom Jesus commissions to spread the good news in today’s gospel. He commissions each one of us.
“I am your brother Joseph, whom you once sold into Egypt. But now do not be distressed, and do not reproach yourselves for having sold me here. It was really for the sake of saving lives that God sent me here ahead of you.”
GN 44:18-21, 23B-29; 45:1-5
Jesus said to his Apostles: “As you go, make this proclamation: ‘The Kingdom of heaven is at hand.’”
