SUNDAY, October 10                  20 Pentecost

Mark 10:28 Peter began to say to him, “Look, we have left everything and followed you.”

Today I continue celebrating my life, but I celebrate it with all my sisters and brothers in Christ. They see my spiritual growth and how my life’s ministry continues to grow. Today our priest handed me a license as a eucharistic minister—one of various achievements that have strengthened my faith journey. My hands, my desires, and my creativity are never still. In the Lord’s vineyard, there is always work to be done, and able hands are needed to do the work of mission. In everything I do, I try to give the best of myself.

I will never be sorry for saying “Yes” to Christ four years ago. I will keep following where he leads. I pray that people will see the face of Jesus in me—the face of the Jesus who moves us in his love. This is only achieved by looking at others and blessing them in God’s name. Like Peter, let us follow the way of Jesus.

MOVING FORWARD: Look in the mirror. Do you see the face of Jesus? When others look at you, do they see Jesus in all you do and say? What steps might you take to recommit to following Jesus?
