Summoned those whom he wanted

“Jesus went up the mountain and summoned those whom he wanted and they came to him.” (MK 3: 13)

He appointed them in a very solemn way—“went up the mountain” and used His authority—“summoned those whom He wanted.” But also He left a place for us—“they came to Him.” And this is God’s whole strategy—He is always first with His blessing, vocation and grace; we are always invited to respond—to take action and to be in relationship.

“God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation.” (Gospel Acclamation)
