3-Minute Retreat: Chosen to Love

Now before another busy week begins, take a quiet moment to pray for your ministry and for your fellow catechists. 3-Minute Retreat 09-09-13 When I was a kid, we were always choosing sides to play games, usually baseball. I was always hoping to be chosen by my cousin Mona who could crush a softball farther than any of us! It felt so special to be chosen by someone that I admired and looked up to. How affirming it is to be reminded by St. Paul that we have been chosen by God to be a member of his team, so to speak. No one can love like God can and yet, he has chosen us to work with him in spreading his love to others. What an honor!
