The theme of this Sunday is vocation. The first reading describes how Elisha responded to the call to Elijah. It was during the time of Ahab and Jezebel who were persecuting the believers. The Gospel describes the Christian as a journey undertaken to follow Jesus Christ. The goal of the Master is not to triumph but to sacrifice himself in Jerusalem. Along the way he meets people who either ask or are invited to join his group. Jesus is not interested in having a large number of followers. What he does is tell the person what is entailed in following him. The second reading tells us that people be free to follow Christ or not. The disciple is not bound by any law except the law of love. Let us ask the Lord of the harvest to use each one of us to call many to discipleship. Blessings to all.
