Third Sunday of Easter

April 18, 2010
THE DIFFICULTY OF DISCIPLESHIP

St. Gregory the Great said that “the proof of love is in the works.  Where love exists, it works great things, but when it ceases to act, it ceases to exist.”

Today’s Gospel is all about the difficulty of discipleship.

The first difficulty:  knowing we should do something, but when faced with too many difficult decisions, we just take the easy way out – we keep doing what we have always done.

The second difficulty:  admitting our failures, because we will fail and starting all over again.

The third difficulty:  we will be led where we don’t want to go; do things we don’t want to do.  We will be forced to grow and to follow.

What does all this mean for you?  You’ll just have to tune in to find out!
