you who have followed me

August 21, 2018 6:00 am

“Amen, I say to you that you who have followed me, in the new age, when the Son of Man is seated on his throne of glory, will yourselves sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. And everyone who has given up houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or children or lands for the sake of my name will receive a hundred times more, and will inherit eternal life.” (MT 19: 28-29)

Every generation has those “who have followed” Our Lord; people of good will, who have given houses, relatives or lands “for the sake of His name”: consecrated and married, nuns and priests, young and old, who were called to spend their lives serving Him and the Gospel in the Church and in the world to save our generation for heaven.

“Jesus Christ became poor although he was rich so that by his poverty you might become rich.” (Gospel Acclamation)
