A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:

The Harvest Is Abundant But The Laborers Are Few... (Matthew 9:37)

Being called to a Christian life is a very special vocation. Those of us who are called to this life have received a great grace but also a great responsibility...

Dom Helder Camara who was once archbishop of northeast Brazil, said that "When we are called it isn't because we deserve to be. When the Lord fixes his choice, this isn't to reward merit, nor is it to confer an honour. It's to call that person to serve more strenuously than others, in His name. He calls Philip, he calls Andrew. They aren't better than the others, they are answerable for more. They receive more: living for three years with Christ. But for this tremendous grace they are answerable to the whole human race forever." (The Gospel with Dom Helder Camara, - Darton, Longman and Todd 1986)

Today let us reflect on the great graces we receive through our Faith in Jesus and how we can share our Faith for the love and benefit of others.
