It is an invitation to respond generously to God s call. It is an invitation to a life of holiness. Like Jesus in the Gospel stories, which came completely not to do his will but the will of the Father who sent him, it is a call to imitate Jesus. Today in the first Book of Samuel we hear the familiar story of the call that the Lord called Samuel who answered Here I am . The Lord called Samuel and instructed him next time the call came to say, Speak Lord, for your servant is listening The participle here, Listening is the readiness to hear , the readiness to receive divine message, the readiness to do the will of God. It is an important participle. Following Christ, It means giving Christ our heart and being. It means living a life of holiness. We are called to be like Samuel, ready to listen to the voice and impulses of the Holy Spirit speaking to us through our parents, through the words of the Holy Scriptures, through our priests, through our neighbors, through creations, the sea, the moon, the stars, the mountains, oceans, trees, snow, through the Church, songs at Liturgy, the poor and the needy and through our lives of holiness and acts of charity. May the Lord bless us with grace to always say, Here I am Lord, I come to do your will. The Smaller Beatitudes Blessed are those who can laugh at themselves; they will have no end of fun. Blessed are those who know when to be quiet and listen; they will learn a lot of new things. Blessed are those who can tell a mountain from a molehill; they will be saved a lot of bother. Blessed are those who are sane enough not to take themselves too seriously; they will be valued by those around them. Happy are you if you can appreciate a smile and forget a frown; you will walk on the sunny side of the street. Happy are you if you know when to hold your tongue and smile; the Gospel has begun to seep into your heart. Blessed are they who think before acting and pray before thinking; they will avoid many blunders. Above all . . . Blessed are those who recognize the Lord in all whom they meet; the light of truth shines in their lives. They have found true wisdom. Before Us Lies Another Year... Before us lies another year which seems a long away Of all the seasons and the months and weeks that pass away. But the years are made of days, you know, And the days are made of hours; The longest walk is made of steps As raindrops make the showers. And great things come from little things, From seeds the forests grow. For drops of water come the brooks And then great river flow. And God can take our little tasks And multiply the seeds Of loving kindness and of toil To great and mighty deeds. Rochester, New York January 18, 2015 Last Sunday we were blessed to have Bishop Salvatore Matano celebrate the 10:00 a.m. Mass at our Church.
