We are a welcoming and caring community dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus,
helping each other discover who God is calling us to be.
|CALLED AND CHOSEN||
Being “called” offers the possibility of being “chosen”. Choice is a two sided freedom. Today we hear about Elisha’s call; he prepares his work and family and then takes up the work of Elijah. We hear Jesus’ stronger call: Jesus demands a free, single-minded response. There is no turning back for those who follow him. It is a daunting call to salvation, to holiness, to sharing his life. He gives us courage to follow him to the Eucharist. Do we, do you, dare to answer that call, wherever it leads?
