Évangile de Jésus Christ selon

saint Marc 3,13-19.


En ce temps-là, Jésus gravit la montagne, et il appela ceux qu’il voulait. Ils vinrent auprès de lui,
et il en institua douze pour qu’ils soient avec lui et pour les envoyer proclamer la Bonne Nouvelle
avec le pouvoir d’expulser les démons.
Donc, il établit les Douze : Pierre – c’est le nom qu’il donna à Simon –,
Jacques, fils de Zébédée, et Jean, le frère de Jacques – il leur donna le nom de « Boanerguès », c’est-à-dire : « Fils du tonnerre » –,
André, Philippe, Barthélemy, Matthieu, Thomas, Jacques, fils d’Alphée, Thaddée, Simon le Zélote,
et Judas Iscariote, celui-là même qui le livra.

Le message

Quel était le sujet profond de son enseignement, sinon l’amour et le pardon ? Quelle était la Bonne Nouvelle qu’Il a demandé d’annoncer? N’était-il pas l’amour qui s’exprime dans le pardon ? Dieu tant aimé le monde, qu’il a donné son Fils unique, non pas pour le juger, mais par Lui que le monde soit sauvé.

L’histoire de David et Saül dans la première lecture nous montre l’importance de ce pardon, car nous tous, sommes les enfants de Dieu. Nous ne pouvons pas nous mettre contre les uns les autres, car nous risquons de nous mettre contre Dieu, Lui-même. S’il y a une personne qui a le droit de nous juger, c’est le Seigneur, le seul qui nous accepte tels que nous sommes. S’il y a un jugement qui s’impose dans notre vie, et accepté par le Seigneur, c’est dans l’amour. Dans l’amour nous souhaitons toujours le bien, même pour nos ennemis.

Scripture: Mark 3:13-19

13 And he went up on the mountain, and called to him those whom he desired; and they came to him. 4 And he appointed twelve, to be with him, and to be sent out to preach 15 and have authority to cast out demons: 16 Simon whom he surnamed Peter; 17 James the son of Zebedee and John the brother of James, whom he surnamed Boanerges, that is, sons of thunder; 18 Andrew, and Philip, and Bartholomew, and Matthew, and Thomas, and James the son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus, and Simon the Cananaean, 19 and Judas Iscariot, who betrayed him. Then he went home.

Commentary of the day


The letter to Diognetus (c.200)
XI

“To send them to preach”


I am not saying anything strange, I am not seeking what is paradoxical. Rather, docile to the teaching of the apostles, I in turn want to teach the nations. I want to pass on the tradition exactly to those who also want to become disciples of the Truth. Who… would not hasten to learn entirely all that the Word of God clearly taught his disciples? For in manifesting itself, that Word, which was not understood by those who did not believe in him, showed the truth to his disciples; speaking openly, he told his disciples everything. He recognized them to be his faithful ones, and they received from him knowledge of the mysteries of the Father.

That is why the Word was sent into the world. And so that he might be shown to the whole world, … he was proclaimed by the apostles, so that the nations might believe in him. He who was from the beginning (1 Jn 1:1), manifested himself in newness, and his disciples recognized in him what was old. In the heart of his saints, he is always born anew young … Through him, the Church is filled with richness. Grace opens up, is multiplied in the saints. It gives the understanding of faith, uncovers the mysteries of the Father; it gives understanding of the times… It is offered to those who seek it and who respect the rule of faith and faithfully keep the tradition of the Fathers.

Here the fear of the Law is sung; here the grace of the prophets is acknowledged, the faith of the Gospels is strengthened, the tradition of the apostles is kept; the grace of the Church leaps for joy. Do not sadden this grace. Then you will know the secrets, which the Word of God reveals through whom he wishes, when it pleases him. Draw near, listen, and you will know all that God entrusts to those who truly love him.
