Sts. Simon & Jude, Apostles (F)

Ephesians 2:19-22; Psalm 19:1-6; Luke 6:12-16

Jesus went to pray

Before summoning from among his disciples the twelve who are called “apostles”, Jesus went into the hills and spent the whole night in prayerful communion with his Father. Only then did he call each one by name. In Ephesians, Jesus is “the cornerstone”, the apostles the “foundations ... aligned on him” so that people from every nation can “grow into one holy temple in the Lord”. Jesus chose Simon and Jude as his apostles. He calls us by Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist as his disciples.

Lord, through prayer, help me align myself on you.
