    Daily Shots - February 20, 2020

    Listen to today's daily shot for a reflection on the Gospel of Mark 8:27-33.

    Jesus and his disciples set out
    for the villages of Caesarea Philippi.
    Along the way he asked his disciples,
    “Who do people say that I am?”
    They said in reply,
    “John the Baptist, others Elijah,
    still others one of the prophets.”
    And he asked them,
    “But who do you say that I am?”
    Peter said to him in reply,
    “You are the Christ.”
    Then he warned them not to tell anyone about him.

    He began to teach them
    that the Son of Man must suffer greatly
    and be rejected by the elders, the chief priests, and the scribes,
    and be killed, and rise after three days.
    He spoke this openly.
    Then Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him.
    At this he turned around and, looking at his disciples,
    rebuked Peter and said, “Get behind me, Satan.
    You are thinking not as God does, but as human beings do.”

    Listen to today's daily shot for a reflection on the Gospel of Mark 8:22-26.

    When Jesus and his disciples arrived at Bethsaida,
    people brought to him a blind man and begged him to touch him.
    He took the blind man by the hand and led him outside the village.
    Putting spittle on his eyes he laid his hands on him and asked,
    “Do you see anything?”
    Looking up he replied, “I see people looking like trees and walking.”
    Then he laid hands on his eyes a second time and he saw clearly;
    his sight was restored and he could see everything distinctly.
    Then he sent him home and said, “Do not even go into the village.”

    Listen to today's daily shot for a reflection on the Gospel of Mark 8:14-21.

    The disciples had forgotten to bring bread,
    and they had only one loaf with them in the boat.
    Jesus enjoined them, “Watch out,
    guard against the leaven of the Pharisees
    and the leaven of Herod.”
    They concluded among themselves that
    it was because they had no bread.
    When he became aware of this he said to them,
    “Why do you conclude that it is because you have no bread?
    Do you not yet understand or comprehend?
    Are your hearts hardened?
    Do you have eyes and not see, ears and not hear?
    And do you not remember,
    when I broke the five loaves for the five thousand,
    how many wicker baskets full of fragments you picked up?”
    They answered him, “Twelve.”
    “When I broke the seven loaves for the four thousand,
    how many full baskets of fragments did you pick up?”
    They answered him, “Seven.”
    He said to them, “Do you still not understand?”

    Listen to today's daily shot for a reflection on the Gospel of Mark 8:11-13.

    The Pharisees came forward and began to argue with Jesus,
    seeking from him a sign from heaven to test him.
    He sighed from the depth of his spirit and said,
    “Why does this generation seek a sign?
    Amen, I say to you, no sign will be given to this generation.”
    Then he left them, got into the boat again,
    and went off to the other shore.

    Listen to today's daily shot for a reflection on the Gospel of Mark 8:1-10.  

    In those days when there again was a great crowd without anything to eat,
      Jesus summoned the disciples and said,
      “My heart is moved with pity for the crowd,
      because they have been with me now for three days
      and have nothing to eat.
    If I send them away hungry to their homes,
      they will collapse on the way,
      and some of them have come a great distance.”
    His disciples answered him, “Where can anyone get enough bread
      to satisfy them here in this deserted place?”
    Still he asked them, “How many loaves do you have?”
    They replied, “Seven.”
    He ordered the crowd to sit down on the ground.
    Then, taking the seven loaves he gave thanks, broke them,
      and gave them to his disciples to distribute,
      and they distributed them to the crowd.
    They also had a few fish.
    He said the blessing over them
      and ordered them distributed also.
    They ate and were satisfied.
    They picked up the fragments left over—seven baskets.
    There were about four thousand people.

    He dismissed the crowd and got into the boat with his disciples
      and came to the region of Dalmanutha.”

    Listen to today's daily shot for a reflection on the Gospel of Mark 7:31-37.

    Jesus left the district of Tyre
    and went by way of Sidon to the Sea of Galilee,
    into the district of the Decapolis.
    And people brought to him a deaf man who had a speech impediment
    and begged him to lay his hand on him.
    He took him off by himself away from the crowd.
    He put his finger into the man’s ears
    and, spitting, touched his tongue;
    then he looked up to heaven and groaned, and said to him,
    “Ephphatha!” (that is, “Be opened!”)
    And immediately the man’s ears were opened,
    his speech impediment was removed,
    and he spoke plainly.
    He ordered them not to tell anyone.
    But the more he ordered them not to,
    the more they proclaimed it.
    They were exceedingly astonished and they said,
    “He has done all things well.
    He makes the deaf hear and the mute speak.”
