Blessed Francis Xavier Seelos –
In today’s gospel, the jubilant return of the seventh-two disciples must have warmed Jesus’ heart. They must have been carrying on like little kids. I could just here their excitement. Imagine them telling stories, their eyes wide, voices loud, arms waving as they described the miracles they worked in his name. When was the last time we got that excited about our faith and the things that we could do in Jesus name?
