MEDITATION for JANUARY 2016

Posted in Parish Matters

For those who want to walk with him, Christ’s call is radical and unequivocal. He asks us to "renounce" ourselves. This is a difficult word for the mentality of today. It does not mean that we must deny what we are. We are called to abandon that part of ourselves that goes against the life of Christ and his teachings. Christ invites us to discover our true self by following him. It is not by a lukewarm and lazy attitude, but only with all their heart and all their strength that the disciples can follow the path of the Master.
