WELCOME TO ST. JOHN THE BAPTIST ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH

From the Deck of Fr. Mike

Dear Friends, I take this time share with you this reflection:

In today's Gospel, Jesus is presented to us as the master storyteller. He loved to use parables as a tool for comparing one thing to something else. In most of his parables, Jesus revealed who God is by comparing God's essence or actions with something familiar to his listeners. In the parable of the mustard seed, Jesus proclaims a marvelous and irrefutable truth. His small band of disciples, as insignificant as they may have felt, would one day produce a mighty kingdom whose growth was initiated by God. The seeds of this kingdom were planted by God and it is God who will harvest the fruit brought forth from those seeds. The extent of the growth of God's kingdom cannot be predicted. We must trust the work of the Master's hand as we, the mustard plant, grow and grow.

May God bless you all,

Fr. Mike

LA VOCACION

El domingo pasado el evangelio nos habló acerca de la llamada y la misión de los doce apóstoles enviados de dos en dos (Mc 6, 9-13). Además coincidió con el retiro vocacional organizado por el Sr. Obispo Monseñor Barber. De ahí pues, que venga la idea de compartir con ustedes un poco el tema vocacional. La definición más simple de vocación es: llamada. Se trata de una llamada a un estado de vida. Pero ante todo, es la llamada de Dios para despertar a la propia vida.
