Slava Isusu Hristu! Glory be to Jesus Christ!
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ!
“Come, follow me, and I will show you how to fish for people!” With these words our Lord called his first disciples. Today as we all try to bring people back to Church, to invite them to worship the Lord, to become members of our parishes, are we letting Jesus show us how to do that, or we are trying with our own ideas, philosophies and methods? No matter how good, smart or even brilliant the ideas we have, we are to first of all let Jesus guide us and show us the way. With his gentle loving words “follow me”, which we have heard in today’s Gospel (Mt. 4:18-23), He reminded us that we are just instruments in his hands in everything we do, including the evangelization of the people. From our part we must just listen to him, obey him and submit to him. Everything else, he will take care of.
Yours in Christ!
