A reflection on Saturdays Sacred Scripture

Follow Me. (Luke 5:27) Two simple words--a universe of meaning.

"Follow me" is a simple command, but, like the cross each of us is to bear, it has a meaning that is unique to each individual.

Everyone is called to follow Jesus, to discover the salvation wrought for each person by God. Each person is to follow Jesus and to proclaim the gospel--but once again, how each person does that is in part decided by how that person has been formed in the image of God. Some preach, some write, some cook, some clean homes, some listen, some read to handicapped children, some drive people to and from church and meetings. There are millions of ways to follow Jesus.

So while the words are simple, the possibilities are endless. And the season of Lent is a perfect time to discover what those possibilities might be. By fasting, repentance, almsgiving, and prayer, we set out to discover what God wants from us. This is a season for that kind of work--a specially blessed season during which we can discover what it means to follow Jesus.
