Invited READINGS FOR THE WEEK 
The Good News is that we have all been invited—invited to  

the Kingdom, invited to be disciples. It’s a life-changing invi- Mon: Col 1:24 — 2:3; Lk 6:6-11
tation, and like so many other such invitations, it requires a Tues: Col 2:6-15; Lk 6:12-19
great deal of deliberation and discernment. Whether we Wed: Col 3:1-11; Lk 6:20-26
choose marriage, ordination, single life, or community life, Thurs: Col 3:12-17; Lk 6:27-38

Gospel, we have weighed both the monetary and emotional Sun: Ex 32:7-11, 13-14; Ps 51; 1 Tm 1:12-17;
cost. We have pondered and planned our lives in the direction Lk 15:1-32
to which we believe God has called us. And while we pray for
guidance and acceptance of God’s will, we often fail to under-
stand so much. Like Solomon, we turn to God for wisdom and Reflection Question
