DGeMs- Daily Gospel eMessage

Dear Friend in the Lord,

God’s Calling”: In today’s Gospel, Jesus “called” Peter, Andrew, James and John; all of them fishermen, to be His apostles.  While Jesus may also be “calling” us to a particular vocation, His Spirit is daily “prompting” us to live our lives in accordance to the Gospel He proclaimed.  Are we heeding His calls?

  Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Mark 1:14-20

After John had been arrested, Jesus went into Galilee. There he proclaimed the gospel from God saying, ‘The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is close at hand. Repent, and believe the gospel.’

As he was walking along by the Lake of Galilee he saw Simon and Simon’s brother Andrew casting a net in the lake – for they were fishermen. And Jesus said to them, ‘Come after me and I will make you into fishers of people.’ And at once they left their nets and followed him.

Going on a little further, he saw James son of Zebedee and his brother John; they too were in their boat, mending the nets. At once he called them and, leaving their father Zebedee in the boat with the men he employed, they went after him.
