In the spirit of St. Benedict,
Father Jeremy Heppler, OSB
Jesus makes great things come from small beginnings. He does this again and again throughout history. To every generation He gives many talents, and then He invites individuals to use those talents in the service of God’s Kingdom. We see Jesus doing this in today’s Gospel. After spending the whole night in prayer, Jesus invites twelve young men to become his close disciples. This is the beginning of the Church that Jesus established to continue His work until the end of time.
Jesus is working with each one of us today. He has a plan for each one of us, a plan that only we can accomplish. Each of us has a life’s great project which Jesus offers to us. It is for us to discover that plan through prayer and discernment, and then to freely accept it, committing ourselves to that great task, cooperating with Jesus.
