Feast of St. Bartholomew, apostle
HE WILL FIND YOU
?We have found the one...Jesus, son of Joseph from Nazareth.? ? John 1:45
G O S P E L
Each of us has a different conversion story. What inspires one person to give their life in the service and love of God may only inspire indifference in the life of another and vice versa. Just because something worked for us is no guarantee that it will work in converting the next person. This is why we see Jesus employ numerous techniques or means in calling forth His disciples. Each of them is an individual in his own right and so requires a different approach. Let us pray that the grace of God will help us discern the approach we need to take when evangelizing others into the Kingdom of God.
God?s special verse/thought for me today________________
Thank You Lord for: ____________________________________
READ THE BIBLE IN ONE YEAR Ezekiel 1-5
St. Bartholomew, apostle and martyr, pray for us.
If my father were still alive today, he would be 71 years old. I saw him walked down the aisle of the Manila Cathedral with overwhelming joy on the day of my ordination to the priesthood. Eleven years since then, I sometimes wonder if he is still beaming with joy in heaven for having sired a priest of the Lord. But, aside from relatives and close friends, very few people remember my father.
If I were Nathanael, I would be called ?Barcarlos,? ?Roberto Barcarlos,? ?Roberto son of Carlos.? But I am not Nathanael, and people call me ?Father Bobby.? But both Nathanael and I are gifts of God to our fathers even before we are their gifts to Him.
?Nathan? means ?gift? in Hebrew. ?Nathanel? is ?gift of God.? Nathanael and I are gifts of God. Apostles and priests are exactly that. You, too! Fr. Bobby T.
The FEAST is one of the happiest places on earth.
