Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew 8, 28-34
When Jesus came to the other side, to the country of the Gadarenes, two demoniacs coming out of the tombs met him. They were so fierce that no one could pass that way. Suddenly they shouted, ‘What have you to do with us, Son of God? Have you come here to torment us before the time?’ Now a large herd of swine was feeding at some distance from them. The demons begged him, ‘If you cast us out, send us into the herd of swine.’ And he said to them, ‘Go!’ So they came out and entered the swine; and suddenly, the whole herd rushed down the steep bank into the lake and perished in the water. The swineherds ran off, and on going into the town, they told the whole story about what had happened to the demoniacs. Then the whole town came out to meet Jesus; and when they saw him, they begged him to leave their neighbourhood.
The son of God
- They were fierce: it is one of the characteristics of the devil, but the person who does not have God within can also disturb the path of others. There are fierce people, who cause fear in the lives of others, who destroy and hurt. Do not let anyone hurt you. Do not let anyone destroy that treasure that is within you.
- You are the son of God: they recognize Jesus. In your life, you must also recognize God. Do not isolate yourself from others and focus only on your whims. Do not let your whims torment you, and let God work in you and help you. In life we have to grow by permitting others to help us.
- Go: today God wants to remove the fierceness that you have inside you, God wants to remove that which is hurting you a lot, those memories that harm and torment you, just as he also wants to remove from you that which does not let you smile. Let Him remove that which is caused by he who divides and causes division within you. Let calmness enter your heart. Abandon yourself in Him and let him help you.
May God bless you in the name of the Father, of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. And always remember Heaven is our goal.
