In the reading from the Acts of the Apostles, we are told that “the word of God continued to spread, and the number of disciples. . . increased greatly.” Our task as Christ’s dis-ciples is to spread the word of God just as the disciples in the early Church did. Are we doing this? Christ reminds us in today’s gospel “that whoever believes in me will do the works that I do” so, ask for the grace to do the works that Jesus did.
