Saturday of the Twenty Sixth Week in Ordinary Time ‘c’

We often say that there is more joy in giving than in receiving, which is very true. For most of us, doing something good to others brings some sense of a good feeling, of joy and satisfaction. It feels great to look at others who are experiencing happiness because we have done something good for them. The seventy-two disciples had a very similar experience. Today, we read that they were returning from their journey, rejoicing because of all the good things they had doing -- “The seventy-two disciples returned rejoicing and said to Jesus, Lord, even the demons are subject to us because of your name.” And there is something very important here for us Christians: it is good and important to do good to others, but not for our own satisfaction, but because we do it in the name of Christ. This is what Christians are called to do. And then the Lord will tell us: “do not rejoice because the spirits are subject to you but rejoice because your names are written in heaven.”
