St Barnabas, Apostle

Acts 11:21-26, 13:1-3; Psalm 98: 1, 2-3ab, 3cd-4, 5-6; Matthew 10: 7-13

A dedicated man

Barnabas is spoken of simply as one who dedicated his life to the Lord. He was a man “filled with the Holy Spirit and faith. Thereby large numbers were added to the Lord”. His holy dedication, however, did not stop him from falling out with Paul and going his own way to successfully continue his ministry. Even good and holy people don’t always see eye-to-eye. Something we should keep in mind when working in and for our parish community perhaps?
