YOUR VOCATION IS LOVE

SATURDAY OF THE NINTH WEEK OF ORDINARY TIME




Today's readings tell us being mediocre in our faith will not accomplish the mission of this life, eternal life with the Trinity.


The first reading from St. Paul urges us to proclaim the word, whether it is easy or not. Hold others accountable when they fall away from Christ's teaching. Do not be one of those who become lukewarm about your faith and accept the world's beliefs over the word of truth.


In the Gospel, Jesus notices the poor widow who gives what little she has to the collection. She "contributed all she had." (Mark 12:44)


God doesn't want us to be a little bit faithful. He wants us to offer ourselves entirely. Proclaiming the word is living a life of devotion to the Lord. Look at Mother Teresa or St. Pope John Paul; they are examples of how we should live as saints in this life. If you think you are too busy with life to be like them, think again. The life you are called to is made Holy by a radical yes to living all in for God. There are no mediocre saints.
