Prayer of the Day

Feast of St. Simon & St. Jude, Apostles

" Jesus calls his Apostles." Luke 6 : 12

What is God’s call on your life?  When Jesus embarked on his mission he chose twelve men to be his friends and apostles. In the choice of the twelve, we see a characteristic feature of God’s work: Jesus chose very ordinary men.    Jesus wanted ordinary men who could take an assignment and do it extraordinarily well.  He chose these men, not for what they were, but for what they would be capable of becoming under his direction.  When the Lord calls us to serve, we must not shrug back because we think that we have little or nothing to offer.  The Lord takes what ordinary people, like us, can offer and uses it for greatness in his kingdom.  Do you make your life an offering to the Lord and allow him to use you as he sees fit?


Lord, fill me with gratitude and generosity for all you have done for me. Take my life and all that I have as an offering of love for you, who are my All. Amen
