Dear Friend in the Lord,

God’s Calling” – Faith: In today’s Gospel, Jesus called the apostles to become His disciples.  They all “left their nets and followed Him.”  Ponder on, “God is ‘calling us to live our lives with greater generosity, compassion and love and care for others; especially those who are suffering.  What has our response been?

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Matthew 4:18-22

As Jesus was walking by the Sea of Galilee he saw two brothers, Simon, who was called Peter, and his brother Andrew; they were making a cast in the lake with their net, for they were fishermen. And he said to them, ‘Follow me and I will make you fishers of men.’ And they left their nets at once and followed him.

Going on from there he saw another pair of brothers, James son of Zebedee and his brother John; they were in their boat with their father Zebedee, mending their nets, and he called them. At once, leaving the boat and their father, they followed him.
