followMeToday’s Gospel

‘Follow me,(Luke 5:27).

Daily Lent Reflection

In today’s gospel we hear the call of Matthew; he is called to be a disciple of Jesus.  Matthew is sitting in the customs house and Jesus approaches him and says ‘Follow me’.  These words change Matthew’s life.  But this call is not just something that happened to Matthew: it is a call to each one of us, and it is a call each day. 

Lent is a very good time to take stock and almost conduct an audit of our lives.

Daily Lent Challenge

Today I will reflect on what parts of my life I need to leave behind to follow Jesus more faithfully.
