Dear Friends,

May the Lord give you peace!   Today’s Gospel, that of Monday 13th January 2020, the 1st Monday of Ordinary Time is worth reflecting on if you feel called to be a priest, brother or sister but are HESITANT.   

Jesus called ‘people who were working’  fishermen, to follow him.   “Follow me and I will make you fishers of men.”   See how they responded, no hesitancy!!!!  “At once they left their nets and followed him.”   Jesus walked on and saw two brothers, they too were working, he called them and ‘AT ONCE’ (again no hesitancy) they went after him. I encourage you to pray and reflect on today’s Gospel reading.   Is God calling you to FOLLOW in the footsteps of JESUS??   If you feel that your call is to the Franciscan Way of life why not contact me at [email protected] 

God bless you as you continue on your discernment journey.

Sincerely,

Pat
