10-04-17 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

October 4, 2017
(St. Francis of Assisi)
Jesus said, “Follow me.”  . . . . And another said, “I will follow you, Lord, but first let me say farewell to my family at home.” Jesus answered him, “No one who sets a hand to the plow and looks to what was left behind is fit for the Kingdom of God.”  Lk_9:57-62

If a driver was to concentrate on what was behind him, he would certainly crash into what is ahead.  If the swimmer or runner were to constantly worry about who’s behind her, she would certainly not win the race.  And if the surfer were to concern himself about the wave crashing in behind him, he’s also never make it to the end of that wave.  Well, if we are to follow Jesus we need to concentrate on the prize and not the past.  Live the moment and make the best of every one that we’re offered, just as St. Francis and Jesus did.
