This weekend we celebrate the Fifth Sunday of Ordinary Time.  In less than a month (March 6), Lent will begin.
In this weekend’s first reading, Isaiah is called by the Lord and sent on a mission.  In spite of recognizing his own sinfulness, Isaiah responds to the Lord’s call with the words, “Here I am, send me.”
In the Gospel, we hear the call of Simon to be a disciple.  Like Isaiah, Simon recognizes that he is a sinful man.  But the Lord has called Simon with all of his strengths and weaknesses.  Simon, as did Isaiah, responds to the call of the Lord.  And we know the rest of the story.  Simon becomes Peter, who becomes St. Peter, the rock on which the Church is built.
Like Isaiah and Simon we are not perfect.  We are sinners.  But the Lord has called us as well, imperfect as we are, to be disciples.  We hear the invitation, we recognize our strengths and weaknesses and we say YES to the Lord’s call.
As disciples of Jesus Christ, we let His light and love shine through us in what we say and what we do.

THE JOURNEY . . . A WAY TO DEEPEN YOUR EXPERIENCE OF JESUS

The Journey is a six-week process of sharing, prayer, and reflection that can help everyone—active parishioner or not—grow in faith.

The Journey brings us into contact with those who knew and encountered Jesus; through videos and sharing, their experience becomes real in our day . . . in our personal lives . . . in our relationships with God and others.

We hope that many parishioners will call 302-539-5443 to sign up and help our parish grow in faith—so that more of our parishioners see themselves as followers of Jesus.
