From my mother’s womb

“But when he, who from my mother’s womb had set me apart and called me through his grace, was pleased to reveal his Son to me, so that I might proclaim him to the Gentiles, I did not immediately consult flesh and blood, nor did I go up to Jerusalem to those who were Apostles before me; rather, I went into Arabia and then returned to Damascus.” (GAL 1: 15-17)

We are called from the beginning of our lives—“from my mother’s womb (He) had set me apart and called me through his grace,” and we are sent to different places. Like St. Francis, to whom God said: “Go and repair my church, which, as you can see, is in ruin.” Probably God could say to us something similar—go and repair my domestic church, which, as you can see, is in danger or even in ruin.” This is our mission today—to bring people hope, show them solutions, and encourage them to “hear the word of God and observe it.”

“Blessed are those who hear the word of God and observe it.” (Gospel Acclamation)
