Weekly Devotion – October 1stWeekly Devotions
During Sunday’s Gospel, Jesus makes it clear that we are either for Him or against Him. Discipleship is an option. Stewardship is not. We have a choice in the matter of whether to follow Jesus, but once we have made that decision we are committed to follow Him wholeheartedly. We are committed to living our lives as good and faithful stewards of the many gifts God has so generously lavished upon us, especially the great gift of our faith. We are committed to living upright and holy lives, learning every day to prefer nothing to the love of Jesus Christ. Our discipleship commits us to make radical decisions to live out our faith clearly and without ambiguity.
We pray together: Guide us, St. Jude, to the people and places that can work God’s will in us. For we are ready to be made servants and disciples in Christ’s name.
