Monday, June 8, was the first day of work. The Eucharist, began at 6:15 a.m., with Father Jon Robbins as the preacher and I celebrated. The biblical readings for the week are focusing on the marks of mission, recognizing that “the Mission of the Church is the Mission of Christ.” The readings for the day concentrated on “proclaiming the Good News of the Kingdom.” Father Jon got us off to a right start when he spoke to us about the way in which we exercise our missionary work, by allowing time to experience being in the presence of God.
