Tuesday of the Twenty-third Week of Ordinary Time

Today’s readings

I’ve heard it said that the only one of the disciples Jesus called that day was Judas Iscariot, and we all know how that worked out.  We don’t know what God considers qualification for discipleship, we just know that somehow, for some reason, we have been called to do whatever it is that we are meant to do in life.  We probably don’t have all the skills necessary to accomplish it, but that’s okay.  If we were able to accomplish everything on our own then we wouldn’t need God, wouldn’t need a Savior.  Thank God that we both need and have him in our lives, and that he has called us all to share in the work of discipleship in some way.
