Prayer of the Day
Feast of St. Peter Damian, Bishop & Doctor of the ChurchFebruary 20th, 2014
In to-day’s Gospel Jesus is testing his disciples, preparing them for the future. Was he really wanting to know if they are authentic followers; he was readying them to stand up and declare that they would be his true disciples.
And what about us Christians to-day? In many respects our age is one of abundance, but amid all this abundance there remains a great hunger in the people to-day, a longing to become all we were created to be. Everything good in the future for our families, our communities, our Church, our nation, and humanity depends on whether or not we will follow this longing! (Quoted from Matthew Kelly’s Rediscovering Catholicism)
