St. Cyril of Alexandria
Today's readings speak about being called. Elijah called Elisha and he burned his prize possessions and made a new start as one of God's chosen prophets. In the gospel, Christ calls his followers to make a new start and follow him. What is Christ calling you to do?
One more thing: To follow Christ's call means to leave all that you were before and become a new person in Him. When Christ called you to be a mom, your life changed dramatically. There may be times when you lament 'the good old days' before children, but Christ tells us in today's gospel to never look back. He called, you said yes, and now you must keep your eyes on him and follow where he leads. As the saying goes, "If he called you to it, he will lead you through it."
Prayer: Jesus, it is my privilege to answer your call and be a mom. Help me in those moments when I turn from looking ahead and look behind. Help me to be steadfast and embrace the journey with you. In your name I pray, Amen. St. Cyril, pray for me.
