appointed you to go

May 24, 2019 6:00 am

“I have called you friends, because I have told you everything I have heard from my Father. It was not you who chose me, but I who chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit that will remain, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name he may give you. This I command you: love one another.” (JN 15: 15-17)

This is part of our mission—keep on the road. Instead of looking for stability, comfort and a familiar environment, we are chosen and appointed “to go and bear fruit that will remain.” On the road we are never alone; Our Lord is always with us and always supports us, assists us and helps us to “bear fruit”; our strength and our effectiveness is not in our actions but in the measure of our love.

“I call you my friends, says the Lord, for I have made known to you all that the Father has told me.” (Gospel Acclamation)
