LEARNING TO LISTEN AND LIVE WITH HARMONY
Our readings remind us that we are all called for a purpose. All of this is for us, but not for us alone. We are meant to take what we have received and pass it on to others. We are fishermen and women; we are prophets of a future that is not our own; we are witnesses to a Kingdom we have yet to see; we are believers – not knowers. . . and that is enough.
Like Isaiah in our first reading, we have felt the Lord’s mercy, and like Isaiah we cry out, “Here I am – Send me!” Right? Right??? Or do we say, “Here I am . . . send her!”
How many times are we like Simon Peter, falling on our knees in sinfulness rather than standing up in grace? Folks, Jesus is calling for you to stand up and be counted.
So we are going to speak about something that I have been wanting to speak to you about for a long, long time: why we sing at Mass and how to sing better!
