The Thankful Gerasene Demoniac

“‘Go home to your family and announce to them all that the Lord in his pity has done for you.’ Then the man went off and began to proclaim in the Decapolis what Jesus had done for him; and all were amazed.”‘ – Mark 5:19-20

After God answered our prayers, are we thankful by announcing them to others or do we keep them to ourselves and go about our normal lives?

The Healing of the Gerasene Demoniac is a great witness to how we ought to act when we receive God’s mercy.

As Pope Francis reminded us last week, “It is easy to ask God for things; we all do it. When will we also learn to give him thanks and to adore him?”

Let’s pray that we learn to use God’s miracles to evangelize others.
