We hear in the Gospel this weekend that we aren’t alone. When Jesus called those fishermen, they weren’t alone when they left the lives they knew. They had company. They went in pairs. Simon and Andrew, James and John.
The Gospel reminds us also of the importance of love, compassion, forgiveness, and service to others. These values are just as relevant today as they were in the time of Jesus. In fact, in a world that seems to be increasingly divided and polarized, the message of the Gospel is more important than ever before.
We are challenged to examine our own lives and to strive for personal growth and spiritual development. We are reminded that we are all called to be disciples of Christ and to live our lives in accordance with his teachings.
Let us take some time to pray and meditate on its message. Let us ask for the grace and strength to live our lives in accordance with the teachings of Jesus Christ, and to be a light in the world for others to follow. Remember Jesus is always with us.
Pray for Peace
