OCTOBER 22, 2010

I, the prisoner in the Lord, urge you therefore to lead a life worthy
of the vocation to which you were called. With all humility and
gentleness, and with patience, support each other in love. Take every
care to preserve the unity of the Spirit by the peace that binds you
together. There is one Body, one Spirit, just as one hope is the goal
of your calling by God. There is one Lord, one faith, one baptism, and
one God and Father of all, over all, through all and within all.

LUKE 12:54-59
He said again to the crowds, 'When you see a cloud looming up in the
west you say at once that rain is coming, and so it does. And when the
wind is from the south you say it's going to be hot, and it is.
Hypocrites! You know how to interpret the face of the earth and the
sky. How is it you do not know how to interpret these times? 'Why not
judge for yourselves what is upright? For example: when you are going
to court with your opponent, make an effort to settle with him on the
way, or he may drag you before the judge and the judge hand you over
to the officer and the officer have you thrown into prison. I tell
you, you will not get out till you have paid the very last penny.'

What is asked of us by the Lord to do now? It is a simple question but
we may not have the answer to it all the time. We pray hard but we may
not have understood the Lord's message. Maybe we did not listen
enough. Or perhaps we understood what the Lord asked of us to do but
we complicate it or make different excuses not to act on it.

The gospel reminds us Christians to be discerning of the Lord's call
at all times. Regardless of our age, status in life, or heritage, we
are always called to bring peace and unity in our family, school,
workplace, community, and society. How exactly can we make it happen?
We need not look far for answer. Our response to this call may differ
from one person to another and depending on the person's
circumstances. But the Lord's standards are simple and always the same
- be humble, gentle and patient. Hardly that we can find these traits
recommended in self-help guide to get a fulfilling job or to establish
a successful business. But it is a powerful inexpensive tool that we
can nurture for a great harvest in the Lord's vineyard. We already
have the seeds. And our dear Lord will help us make them grow and put
to good use. We just need to act on our faith.
