"Whoever receives you receives me, and whoever receives me receives the one who sent me.... And whoever gives only a cup of cold water to one of these little ones to drink because the little one is a disciple—amen, I say to you, he will surely not lose his reward."​

Matthew 10:40, 42
Dear Deacon Nguyen,

There are many weights and measures in our lives.
We weigh our bodies on a scale; we weigh our options when making a decision; and we assign numbers to things—we weigh them—to name a few.

But how does God measure our spiritual weight? Jesus tells us that the answer lies in how well we treat and care for others.

In Matthew 10, Our Lord is sending His disciples to the mission field to preach the Gospel to Israel, giving them authority to perform many of the same miracles He did. Preaching of the unlikely Messiah and healing the sick were to be the focus of their ministries. His assignment for them changed after His death and resurrection, however. Later these same Jewish disciples preached of the Risen Christ to everyone who would listen.

When I first studied Spanish in the Maryknoll language school in Bolivia I was young and, like many North Americans, "all about business". My tendency was to rush into a situation and ask for what I wanted or say what I needed to say—not very culturally correct. After a time, I learned to first say "hello" and ask how people were; I expressed interest in others then got to business. It wasn't just about social graces, it was about showing genuine concern, a lesson I hope I've learned at my present age.

Prayer for 13th Sunday in Ordinary Time​

Dear Lord,
through St. Teresa of Calcutta
You taught us not so much to long
to do great things but rather
to do small things with great love.

Help us appreciate the small tasks
You set before us each moment
of every day and to do these
out of sincere devotion to You,
Your Gospel and Your Kingdom.

Lord, grant we may never judge
as the world judges, but rather
to see things as You see them.
May we value the small
no less than the great
and the weak as much as the strong
that all we say and do
may give You glory.

Amen.

~ Father Joseph R. Veneroso, M.M.
Dinh, every believer is a missionary disciple for Christ. As such, you're "on the team" of the greatest manager in history, and boy does He know how to delegate! Cherish each one of His assignments for you—as your job description changes daily—especially the seemingly insignificant ones, for those are the ones that carry the most weight.

Sincerely yours in Christ,
Father Raymond J. Finch, M.M.
