REFLECTION ON TODAY’S READINGS -We too are Missionary Disciples
Jesus sent out seventy-two disciples ahead of him to prepare the ground for his own ministry later. He gave them definite instructions. He endowed them with the special powers that only he could give. The first missionaries were more than successful in their mission. Look how Jesus himself rejoices and thanks God for the great things his disciples were able to perform in his name! What was the secret of their success? They were aware of the fact that they were on a mission, specially chosen and sent out by Jesus. Secondly, they were aware that their mandate as to preach and teach what they learnt from him, and not their wisdom. Thirdly, they relied on his power and presence, not on their strength or on the security of material possessions. This is the recipe for the success of the missionary work. This also explains why some missionary efforts do not bear fruit even after so many years of hard labour.

The Bishop’s Appointment as Coadjutor Archbishop
On July 5, Bishop Dunn assumed the position of Coadjutor Archbishop for the Archdiocese of Halifax-Yarmouth. At that time, he became the Apostolic Administrator for the Diocese of Antigonish and will continue in that position until a new bishop is named and installed here in this Diocese (the nuncio believes that this will happen by the end of the year). Practically speaking, he shall continue with all commitments here in the Diocese over the next few months. Gradually (in August and in the Fall) he will become more involved in the Archdiocese. From the time that he assumes the office of Coadjutor Archbishop, the Diocese is vacant and until the time that a new Bishop is installed, priests will pray for “our Administrator, Brian” in the Eucharistic Prayer. Please continue to pray for him as he takes on this new position.
