Feast of St. Mel, Bishop

Christ-Taking-Leave-of-Apostles

In the Gospels we hear how Jesus apparently preferred his friends company to his family! The confrontation was used by Jesus to illustrate how important it was to follow the will of God completely. His commitment to his mission superceded his love for his family and kin. As a result His immediate followers became as family to Him.

Lord, let us respect others’ demands on our time and talents, but let us realise the value of our total commitment to you. Amen
