"Lord, those are your best servants who wish to shape their life on Your answers rather than shape Your answers on their wishes." ~St. Augustine
In the Gospel reading for Sunday , we see Jesus at the beginning of his public ministry gathering his disciples. The very first words He speaks in John's Gospel are "What are you looking for?" This is one of the most fundamental questions of life – “What am I looking for? What is the purpose and meaning of my life?” The question is followed by the invitation to "Come and see", a combination of words that indicates the process of coming to faith in Jesus. Only our Creator can make our purpose fully known to us which is why Jesus invites each of us into relationship with Him so that we may come to know ourselves and to live our lives to their fullest. As you prepare for Mass this weekend, here are some questions for reflection: How can I grow daily in my relationship with Jesus? How do I share the joy of this relationship with others?
