The Gospel passage for Mass has very much to do with the life of the Church. The bishop of Rome is the vicar of Christ on earth because he represents Christ on earth and acts for Christ in the government of the Church. Jesus Christ asks all of us to search for souls. The harvest is plenty, but the laborers are few. We must constantly ask the Lord to send out laborers!
It takes courage to respond the the call of discipleship from Christ. We cannot make excuses. We cannot say we are not qualified. We must stop saying the job belongs to someone else. We must all respond to Christ's apostolic mission. We must respond to His call to the priesthood.
Sincerely in Christ,
Rev. Jeffery A. Fasching
