Carrying the Gospel with you

The daily Mass readings arrive in my email inbox via Flocknote every morning. Some days the readings really stand out to me in the morning, but I find it difficult to remember them during the busy day that follows.

Today will not be one of those days.

Read today’s Gospel from Mark 8:34-9:1

Jesus called the people and his disciples to him and said, ‘If anyone wants to be a follower of mine, let him renounce himself and take up his cross and follow me. For anyone who wants to save his life will lose it; but anyone who loses his life for my sake, and for the sake of the gospel, will save it. What gain, then, is it for a man to win the whole world and ruin his life? And indeed what can a man offer in exchange for his life? For if anyone in this adulterous and sinful generation is ashamed of me and of my words, the Son of Man will also be ashamed of him when he comes in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.’ And he said to them, ‘I tell you solemnly, there are some standing here who will not taste death before they see the kingdom of God come with power.’

Now enjoy the musical stylings of TobyMac, the award-winning Christian rapper. You’ll find yourself singing this catchy tune all morning. What a great way to carry today’s Gospel with you throughout the day.
