Amos 7:12-15, Ps.85, Ephesians 1:3-14, Mark 6:7-14

Chosen in Christ

Today’s second reading is one great hymn of praise. Paul is almost overwhelmed by the wonder, the goodness, and the generosity of God. The most wonderful thing of all is that God chose us, chose us ‘in Christ’.

It is all beyond our understanding. Why did God choose to give that tremendous gift of faith to me and to you? There is no answer, and no possible response except great gratitude, and an acknowledgement that such a gift requires a response. God’s call is not to live a respectable Catholic life, but to be holy and to live through love in his presence. Can I even begin to do this? Can you?
