Reflections GOSPEL: Mark 1:7-11
The reading tells us about the call of the first disciples. Followers of John the Baptist responded to the gentle invitation of Jesus; they came and stayed the whole day with him. Then these disciples called their friends to join them. One of them was Simon. Jesus told him that he would be called Peter, or Cephas, a Greek word for rock. One day the Church would be built on the rocklike faith of Peter.

1.) When Jesus enters our lives with the gentle call of his grace, how will we reply?

2.) Will we be busy with other things, afraid he will ask too much of us?

3.) Will we be open to his call and a new beginning in our lives?
