The Key To Knowing God's Will Is?

From the Desk of Father Mark, Your Catholic Sunday Homily Minute - 26th Sunday of Ordinary Time

My Dear People,

The Key To Knowing God's Will

Doing the Father's will is the theme of the Gospel today. How do we know what God's will is for us? How did Jesus know what the Father's will was for Him? Jesus prayed. He prayed often. He prayed from the heart. In obedience to the will of God the Father, Jesus, His only Son, always spoke in His Father's Name. Today's Gospel from Matthew, focuses doing what God's asks of us. Being one in mind and heart in union with God, is a key to fulfilling His Divine Will. Our vocation is a life response to the Will of God.

Catholics are called to live three lifestyles; the single state, married life; and priesthood or religious life. This is why it is so essential that a lot of prayer and discernment must go into choosing our vocation. When we enter into the covenantal stage of our vocation, we receive all of the help and grace that we need to complete it. PRAY for the discernment and grace to know and live God's will.

May we support the work in God's vineyard with their time, talent and treasure.

Entrusting you to the care of Our Lady,
Fr. Mark
