Sorry Jesus. I would have brought a walking stick at the very least. Good for the gait and fending of those wild creatures along the way. You might have given me power and authority over all demons, but bandits and wolves, likely not.
While my power and authority over demons is questionable, I do have both to welcome strangers. We all do, especially those in need of help and healing. The sick are everywhere and in need of food, clothes, and money. That’s why so many come to Christ the King’s ministries such as the Food Pantry.
There will be no shaking of dust off the feet of those seeking Good News at Christ the King. Thanks be to God, and parishioners.
