Deacon Tony reflects
Jesus knows how urgent our response must be to our call to discipleship. Not until the end of this term, or until after the summer holidays, or until the moment feels right. For Jesus the right moment is now.
Jesus prays for his disciples and those who will follow them. This includes us. Do others see us as a loving community? Do we look out for one another?
As we hear in the 2nd reading, the foundation stones of the New Jerusalem bear the names of the apostles. We are their legacy, now we are the Church, the ones to share God’s word with those we meet.
