2nd Sunday of Ordinary Time

January 14, 2018

It’s your call

Most of us are leery about accepting calls from unknown sources. In the happy age of caller ID, it’s as if a virtual butler brings each visitor’s card on a silver tray into our drawing room. We can decline to be “home” to any undesirable contact. Still, people of faith do want to be present when it’s God who comes calling. How do we learn to distinguish that special voice from all the internal chatter clamoring for our attention? Veterans in discernment are helpful mentors, including pastors, spiritual directors, and the blueprint stories of past saints. Seekers, take the call!

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.”
