Fr. Rick’s Two-Minute Homily for Friday 2nd Week in Ordinary Time

Who is Your Mentor?

When I began my studies for the priesthood in England, I met a priest who knew Jesus. Fr. Anthony Meredith profoundly affected me and my relationship with God. He wasn’t a scholar who could teach a theological course. He had a presence about him, and I soon discovered that Presence was Christ.

Fr. Anthony taught me how to follow Jesus. Reading this morning’s Gospel reminded me of Fr. Anthony. “Jesus summoned those He wanted, and they came to Him.” Fr. Anthony was my summons to Jesus.

In those formative years of my studies and religious life, the Lord blessed me to notice that summons so I could go to Jesus. Every morning, I still go to Him in the Blessed Sacrament during adoration, and in His Holy Word, I am sharing with you now.  

Gospel Challenge:

Do you know someone who is summoning you to Jesus? Maybe you don’t recognize the call right away. Don’t be concerned because the Lord will keep calling you. When something keeps coming up, like calling or visiting a friend or getting involved in a ministry, check it out.

The Lord touches our hearts because He knows how much we will enjoy His “new” way of being with us. Like Jesus wanted the Apostles, He wants you and me to be with Him too.

Love Your Neighbor:
Please join me in praying for all baptized Catholics to be faithful to Jesus in the Holy Mass every weekend. Hail Mary, full of grace…

Mother Mary, “I am yours now and forever. Through you and with you, I always want to belong completely to Jesus.” The Surrender Novena – InHeartland. https://inheartland.com/pages/the-surrender-novena

Peace be with you.
