The Call to Serve

Good News for January 15, 2006
Cycle B

Readings:

"Speak Lord, your servant is listening." (1 Sam 3:3-19)
"You should use your body for the greater glory of God." (1 Cor 6:13-20)
"You are Simon, son of John: you to be called Cephas." (Jn 1: 35-42)

Before we could even know him God called us by name when we were baptized. He called us to be his sons and daughters and gave each of us a task in the Church. Vocation is not restricted to priests and nun but a call given to us all. This call came not only once, when we became God's children in baptism. God keeps calling us day after day to live as his children and to work for his kingdom." (Camilo Marivoet, CICM, Liturgy Alive)

What do you think God is calling you do at this particular point in your life? Do you think that God is also calling you to do something and be "good news" for a greater number of people, say, the Philippines?

Share your thoughts and prayers and may God bless you!

    PRAYER

    "Lord Jesus Christ, you have all power to heal and to deliver. There is no trouble nor bondage you cannot overcome. Set me free to serve you joyfully and to love and serve others generously. May nothing hinder me from giving myself wholly to you and to your service."
