What a blessing to have seminarians with us this summer07-15-2018Fr. Michael Straley
It is such a blessing to have seminarians with us again this summer. Usually we do not have room for them but this summer they are staying in the convent since the sisters have left. We rejoice that they have committed to discern god’s call for their life. Sometimes, that means giving up their own dreams to follow God’s call.
What about your call? All of us are called by our baptism to a life of ministry and following our Lord. Sometimes, that also means for us that we give up some of our dreams.
The call of every baptized Christian is to mission. We are called to evangelize those in our families, our work places, and our neighbors. We are called to be signs of God’s presence in the world by all we say and do. We are also called to live as community, not primarily as individuals. We are called to live “we over me”.
May our seminarians this summer be a reminder that all of us must be discerning God’s call in our lives.
