Brothers and Sisters
Judeo-Christian history and our weekend readings remind us again that being called to be God’s people is a gift and a privilege. But it is also a responsibility that comes with expectations. Even in difficult times, we hear that what is offered to us is not to be squandered. We are free, of course, to respond however we choose. But if we accept our calling, it comes with a price. Being chosen, being Christian, as with all relationships, is not easy sometimes. In light of all that is going on in this world....natural disasters, human violence, hunger and famine, let us resolve to offer one of the the greatest gifts that we have been given by our Creator....prayer! Let us continue to pray for the world's needs.
