be his witness before all

January 25, 2018 6:00 am

“The God of our ancestors designated you to know his will, to see the Righteous One, and to hear the sound of his voice; for you will be his witness before all to what you have seen and heard. Now, why delay? Get up and have yourself baptized and your sins washed away, calling upon his name.” (ACTS 22: 14-16)

This is our vocation—“be His witness before all,” not because we are special (St. Paul when chosen wasn’t really a good person) but because He chose us. It is always more about Him than about us. 

“I chose you from the world, to go and bear fruit that will last, says the Lord.” (Gospel Acclamation)
