JANUARY 10, 2011

Readings: Heb 1:1-6 / Ps 97:1-2, 6-7, 9 / Mk 1:14-20

God has spoken in the past to our ancestors through the prophets, in
many different ways, although never completely; but in our times he
has spoken definitively to us through his Son. He is the one God
appointed heir of all things, since through him he unfolded the stages
of the world. He is the radiance of God's Glory and bears the stamp of
God's hidden being, so that his powerful word upholds the universe.

Andrew casting a net in the lake, for they were fishermen. And Jesus
said to them, "Follow me, and I will make you fish for people." At
once, they left their nets and followed him. Jesus went a little
farther on and saw James and John, the sons of Zebedee; they were in
their boat mending their nets. Immediately, Jesus called them and they
followed him, leaving their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired

After the baptism of Jesus yesterday, he now begins his public life
with the theme of repentance, the need to acknowledge our faults and
failures, the need for forgiveness, and the essential belief in the

However, the Lord does not stop there. He calls Simon, and his brother
Andrew, James, and his brother John. He wants to make them fishers of

At this time of January 2011, the Lord also calls all of us into his
mission of catching men. He needs our help to be his hands and his
feet, his heart and his love, to show the world that love and
forgiveness are at hand. He needs us to show everyone that belief in
the Gospel leads to his kingdom.

We need to be his witnesses to his truth and his love.

The apostles answered immediately and responded positively by leaving
what they were doing. He is not asking us to leave what we are doing
but he is asking us to be his witness. How are we going to respond?
