In the Gospel passage from Matthew for today's Feast of St. Barnabas Jesus tells us "As you go, make this proclamation: 'The Kingdom of heaven is at hand.' Cure the sick, raise the dead, cleanse lepers, drive out demons.(Mt 10:7-8) That being the case the Kingdom is at hand here in Honduras because the wonderful doctors, dentist, eye doctors, nurses, etc here are curing the sick and bringing the dead to life as well as casting out the demons of fear and ignorance. The Kingdom is alive in the people here, but also in those of us who are here to serve. Once again I let pictures (above and below) tell the story. By the way if you click on a picture it will enlarge.
