‘You did not choose me: no, I chose you.’

These words of Jesus to his disciples were a timely reminder to them. As modern-day disciples of Jesus, they are just as timely a reminder for us. Once chosen, there is a job to be done. Then and now, those who are chosen are commissioned to go out and lead others to God the Father through following Jesus’ teaching.

Anyone chosen can fail, just as Judas failed. The love passed down to Judas from the Father through the Son was replaced in Judas’ case by a love of money. For us today, the choice, put simply, is between God and the ‘me society’. Let us pray for the grace to love as Jesus loved and for the strength to remain true to his teachings.
