Reflection

How hesitant we are to recognize Jesus as Lord of our lives! If he takes precedence over our every preoccupation, however, our lives as disciples become contagious. In today’s gospel, Jesus gives to his followers the commission to spread the Good News of God’s love throughout the world. We are baptized into Christ through the Spirit so that we may praise the Father. That experience of God’s love should overflow so that we exhibit the joy of living in Christ’s company. To be effective disciples, we must be able to read—as did the chosen people in today’s first scripture passage—the signs of God’s interventions in our own lives. This same God is our creator, redeemer and sustainer still. St. Paul’s letter to the Romans speaks out of that apostle’s experience of transforming contact with God. We, God’s children, can call God our dear Abba, Father; we are co-heirs with Christ and even now are being transformed by the Spirit. We share in Christ’s suffering so that we may be children of glory.

SHARELIFE

Living the Gospel by helping young families succeed

Camila was attending programs at Rose of Sharon Services for Young Mothers when she and her daughter were kicked out of the family home. As counsellors helped her search for an affordable apartment, she became pregnant a second time. Despite these challenges, Camila attended every program available to her at Rose of Sharon. At the end of the year, she walked out a stronger woman with a plan to achieve the life she wants for herself and her daughters.

Last year, at ShareLife-funded agencies that assist young mothers, over 1,000 clients like Camila received support for their new families

This Sunday, May 27 is ShareLife Sunday
