Feast of Sts. Peter and Paul
What I love about Sts. Peter and Paul is how human they were. They didn't have any special gifts that made them 'saintly'. In fact, their faults were laid open for all to see. What they had was a desire to live for Christ.
One more thing: Peter and Paul are examples of people saying 'yes' to Christ's call. They didn't have everything they needed for the journey, but Christ gave them the Holy Spirit and they fulfilled his will for their lives through obedience and love. You and I can be like them, saying 'yes' to God each day and living out the vocation to which we were called with our utmost effort.
Prayer: Lord Jesus, thank you for the example of Sts. Peter and Paul. Help me to live my vocation of motherhood with the fervor and dedication that they lived theirs. In your name I pray, Amen. Sts. Peter and Paul, pray for me.
