Sunday’s call: invitation to follow Jesus.

wl4

Today we are invited to pay attention to God and to know more profoundly how much God loves us and wants us to love Him. God invites us to take Him seriously and to begin to ” READ HIS WORD IN THE BIBLE AND LET WORD FORM OUR LIVES ” “ Don’t be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what is good, well-pleasing, and perfect will of God. ” Romans  12: 2.

Today’s Gospel from Saint Matthew 16: 21 – 27 “… If anyone desires to come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, and whoever will lose his life for my sake will find it… “; tells us about the relationship of Jesus with His followers.Jesus invites us to follow Him, and accept the suffering that come with that following. If we follow our Lord, we will suffer as the Prophet Jeremiah ( Jeremiah 20: 7-9 ) or Saint Paul in recognizing that we must be transformed by the renewal of our mind ( Romans 12: 2 ). In the midst of all this, the name of God can become like aburning fire in our hearts “,
