TAKE FIVE FOR FAITH: Daily renewal for busy Catholics 1/20/2012

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."

FEAST OF FABIAN, MARTYR, POPE AND SEBASTIAN, MARTYR

Take this call seriously
Saint Sebastian, the patron saint of soldiers, and Saint Fabian, who was chosen as pope by the sign of a dove descending from above, were both men who embraced what God had called them to do and eventually gave their lives for Christ. They accepted the opportunities God offered them and fought through persecution because they believed in the unconditional love of God. The apostles did the same when Jesus summoned them up a mountain. By emulating the apostles and Sebastian and Fabian, we allow ourselves to fully accept our true vocation from Jesus.

TODAY’S READINGS: 1 Samuel 24:3-21; Mark 3:13-19 (315)
“Jesus went up the mountain and summoned those whom he wanted and they came to him.”
