Reflection for Tuesday October 28, Feast of Saints Simon and Jude; Luke 6:12-16

Gospel: Luke 6:12-16
Jesus went up to the mountain to pray, and he spent the night in prayer to God. When day came, he called his disciples to himself, and from them he chose Twelve, whom he also named Apostles: Simon, whom he named Peter, and his brother Andrew, James, John, Philip, Bartholomew, Matthew, Thomas, James the son of Alphaeus, Simon who was called a Zealot, and Judas the son of James, and Judas Iscariot, who became a traitor.

Reflection:
Among the many to be called, why did Jesus chose these twelve ordinary men to be His apostles? We never know the reason considering that before a man becomes a Priest or Deacon he needs to study for years. Same as when a woman desires to become a nun she also has to go through a formation process that takes years to complete.

So why did Jesus called these very ordinary men to become apostles? The reason perhaps that Jesus wants to convey is this: We need not become a priest or a nun to become a follower of Jesus. Anyone of us by virtue of our baptism could become a follower even if we have no education and even if we are not educated about our faith.

Some if not many of us may have this mistaken notion that the sole responsibility of spreading the faith lies in the hands of the priest. No for we are all called by Jesus to become his follower and to spread the faith. The less educated we are the more that He calls us to follow Him this is for the reason that Jesus does not call the qualified He qualifies the called.   

Therefore each and everyone of us has this special mission given to us by Jesus. Jesus wants us to become His missioners so that our faith could grow much further. So that through us Jesus could save and inspire more lives.

Do you find time to share Jesus through your words and actions? - Marino J. Dasmarinas
