“But Jesus would not permit him but told him instead, ‘Go home to your family and announce to them all that the Lord in his pity has done for you.’ Then the man went off and began to proclaim in the Decapolis what Jesus had done for him; and all were amazed.” (MK 5: 19-20)
Our homes and our families are the first places to “announce to them all that the Lord in his pity has done for us.” Our spouses and our children need to experience first the good changes in our lives, not in our colleges or in the lives of our friends. Our families are first. This is your main identity—you are a husband, you are a wife, together you are parents. First things first.
“A great prophet has arisen in our midst and God has visited his people.” (Gospel Acclamation)
