READING I:1 Samuel 3:1-10, 19-20
RESPONSORIAL: Psalms 40:2 and 5, 7-8a, 8b-9, 10
GOSPEL: Mark 1:29-39
God's people have always been in bother. The apostles all ran away on Good Friday. Jesus was left alone. If you look at the history of the church you will see that in every age the people have had good reason to believe the Church was in great trouble. But it goes on. Why? Because at the end of the day, God works in the heart of every man and it is here...in the secret recesses of the heart that we see the real Church. Church, before it is anything else, building or institution, is our response to the call of God in our heart. All that matters is the reply we give to our call!
