Happy First Day of Ordinary Time! While we might think of Jan. 1 as the first day of the year, as Catholics today can be seen the first day of the year as we enter into ordinary time with Mark’s telling of the call of Simon, Andrew, James and John (Mk. 1:14-20).
I like to think of how it would sound to add my own name, Rachel, to that list; and then Matthew and each of my children and then my family, my friends, and maybe you?
I’m not a fisherman, and He is asking me to remain at the work of my marriage, my family, and other work such as this. But, I want everything I do to be a result of the reality that I follow Him.
