28 May Answer the Call (Jn 15:16) by Mary Ellen Hoffman
“I have chosen you from the world, says the Lord, and have appointed you to go out and bear fruit, fruit that will last, alleluia.” ~ Jn 15:16 (full readings)
Mary Ellen’s Reflections: Alleluia to all our Life Runners as we have been called by the Lord for the pro-life mission. Do you realize how special you are in being called? The Holy Spirit opened your heart and mind and awakened you to this life-giving service. Many more have been called, but haven’t answered the call. May the Spirit of courage help those wanting to serve overcome the obstacles of ridicule and humiliation by family and friends.
