February is Black History month where we focus on remembering important people and events in the history of the black peoples of the Americas. Our faith teaches us that all peoples are valued and equal in the eyes of God. Let us celebrate the gifts of one another in our world. Jesus sends his disciples into the world to help people see God among them.
In our gospel today, Jesus sends out the disciples 2 by 2 into the world to share the Good News of Jesus and to live out their new found and growing faith. Christmas is long gone, and Lent is nearing so now we prepare to journey with Jesus through the his cross to new life.

Our Father ….
As Jesus disciples on our mission we continue our day in the name of the Father the Son and the Holy Spirit.
