Today's Reflection

There is no reason to take offense at women taking a secondary role - supportive role - as followers of Jesus. In a society where women had no much recognition, it is already revolutionary to have women followers for Jesus who provided financial support for him. They are there following Jesus up to the end unlike most of the apostles – they watched the crucifixion of Jesus from a distance (Mk 15.40-41). This pattern of support continues in the early church (Acts 16. 14-15). People from the margins had a place of importance with Jesus. The generous and loving support of the women today in the Church’s mission can never be ignored. Mission is the goal: men and women participate in it complementing each other with their strengths and specific calls.
