    Reflections

    for Sunday, January 14, 2018

    We are all called to follow the Lord Jesus. Just as all peoples of the Old Covenant, the Old Testament, were called to be faithful to the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, so are we and especially now that we have Christ Jesus as the final revelation. The Book of Samuel shows us that we must wait on the Lord and listen for His Word. The First Letter to the Corinthians tells us that the redemption of our body is part of this plan. And the Gospel reminds us that sometimes we set out to seek the Lord and find out that it was the Lord who called us first.

    Discipleship! We want to be faithful to this God who has sent His Only Son to save us and who gives us His Own Spirit. We are all a bit like Samuel in the first reading today, from the First Book of Samuel: we are confused about who is calling us. Often we can think that it is our human situation or some friend or a spouse or a religious superior who is calling us - and only then we find out that truly it was the Lord Himself. Every day we can prepare ourselves. We can make the words of Samuel our own: "Speak, Lord, your servant is listening."

    Yet how can we say that we are listening if we do not spend time reading the Scriptures and listening to the Word of God? How can we say that we are listening if we never attend Church services? How can we say that we are listening if we do not listen to the presence of God in our sisters and brothers?

    The second reading, from the Letter to the Corinthians reminds us that our bodies are sacred gifts of God and not to be misused. Our bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit. Today we can find so many ways to numb our bodies with pleasure, with addictions with distractions and with countless way of destruction. We must recognize that our bodies are truly joined to the Lord and members of Christ Himself.

    The Gospel brings us back to this direct form of discipleship. In this account from the Gospel of John, it is the followers of John the Baptist who are now seeking out Jesus because of the testimony of John the Baptist. It is clear from this account that Andrew was completely converted by this short encounter with Jesus because he goes to his own brother, Simon, and tells him: We have found the Messiah!! We can only imagine the incredible message that was to Simon. Most likely Simon had his doubts because that seemed to be part of his nature, but he went along and he also becomes completely converted.

    Jesus has shown them a path of life that convinced them that He, Jesus, was the long awaited Messiah, the Savior, the one who could lead them to the Lord. May Jesus be that Messiah and Savior in our lives.

     
    Readings of the day:
    First Reading: 1 Samuel 3.3b-10, 19

    Homily from Abbot Philip, OSB, of the Benedictine Abbey of Christ in the Desert.
