TAKE FIVE FOR FAITH: Daily renewal for busy Catholics 1/15/2012

Citing of the Week

"We live in a time of cultural change, and religious change is part of it. Older structures, including ritual practices and symbols, no longer have the same automatic attraction. That is not a cause for despair."

“Here I am”
Throughout the Bible when God would call on someone by name, the answer would be: “Here I am.” Many saints throughout the church’s history responded with the same willingness to serve God’s will for them, whether it be to start a hospital, feed the poor, educate the young, or shelter the elderly. Even when the task seemed overwhelming, they pursued it. Faced with the challenge of founding a community and an academy in the then-wilderness of Indiana, Saint Mother Theodore Guerin, the foundress of the Sisters of Providence of Saint-Mary-of-the-Woods, wrote: “All appearances are against it.” But establish it she did. Look for opportunities to say an unconditional “yes!” to love and serve others as God loves you.

TODAY’S READINGS: 1 Samuel 3:3b-10, 19; 1 Corinthians 6:13c-15a, 17-20; John 1:35-42 (65)
“Here I am. You called me.”
