…Jesus said to them, “Follow me and I will make you fishers of men and women.”
Happy Word of God Sunday!
Jesus is the Word of God and to follow Him, we must first know Him! To do this, the first thing we must do is read and live the Bible.
Today we read about the calling of the Brothers to stop what they are doing, they are fishermen, to fish for people so that they may have an encounter with Jesus (Mark 1:14-20). If we compare these early days of their ministry, and the end of their ministry, it may seem that they are different people. In reality they have been changed by their relationship with our Lord! They allowed their lives with Jesus to change them. Little by little in their life with Jesus, the Word of God radiated more brightly in their lives and they brought more people to love and serve the Lord. We radiate what they radiated two thousand years ago. If we live the Word of God, we radiate by our lives Jesus and in doing so become fishers of women and men!
We, the Caritas Community, are with you in prayer and are here for you!
