"Are we hesitating"

A key part of our Gospel Reading this Sunday is the onset of the Lord gathering His Apostles, as He initially calls Peter and his brother Andrew, closely followed by the brothers James and John. It is important to note that their response was immediate: "At once they left their nets and followed him (Jesus)." There were no debates, no discussions, and no long considerations. That is a great example to us. Do we hesitate; do we wait to become a disciple of the Lord? We really should not. If we accept Him as our Savior and as the cornerstone of our Church, our response, too, should be immediate and definite.

Are we hesitating in our full response to Jesus as parishioners and priests of St. Joseph the Worker Church? A question we should ask ourselves this day is "Am I doing all I can as a disciple of Christ?" "Am I doing my fair share in supporting my parish and the needs of my Christian community?" Following Jesus faithfully is never easy, but it is what we are called to do as stewards of the Lord's Church and of our parish community.

Please, help us with both your prayers and your financial support as we continue the work of restoring St. Joseph the Worker Church to its former glory – a place of Beautiful prayer, Reconciliation and Healing for God's people.

Thank you and Blessings +
Fr. Kenneth Nobrega
