St Philip Neri | Day of penance
Acts 25:13-21. The Lord has set his throne in heaven – Psalm 102(103):1-2, 11-12, 19-20. John 21:15-19.
We are being asked to say yes
I love reading about Simon Peter. He has a clumsiness about him. He’s outspoken, he’s not highly educated. And yet, he was the man Jesus called to lead his church.
How often do we resist God’s call to ministry because we feel we are not ready? Not good enough? Not qualified? Today’s Gospel reminds us that Jesus is not looking for a polished professional. He’s just asking us to say yes.
