Nehemiah 2:1-8; Psalm 137; Luke 9:57-62

Right action

The call to follow Jesus is often difficult. Our response is never about having the 'right words' or offering a good appearance of being apparently Christian, but it is about the 'right action.' Not 'right words' then but 'right action.'
St Francis shouted 'yes,' not with his words, but with his life actions, responding not with impressive verbs but a Jesus-inspired life style, one totally dedicated to the following of Jesus. He is sometimes referred to as 'Alter Christus,' another Christ. Can I recall a recent experience where my actions, announced that I follow Jesus?
