In this podcast, Msgr. Fred Dolan invites us to remember how closely the Good Shepherd walks with us in our daily lives. He knows everything about us and is there at every moment, ever ready to guide, inspire, and support us as we aim to live out the particular vocation He has lovingly entrusted to us.
God takes a risk with you. As St. John Henry Newman explains, “[God] has committed some work to [you] that he has not committed to another. [You] have [your] mission. He has not created [you] for nothing.” Ultimately, we are free to say ‘no’ to the mission God gives us. Yet only in fulfilling that mission wholeheartedly will we become truly happy and truly free.
As you pray and reflect on this meditation, ask the Holy Spirit for wisdom and light to see how you can put your gifts and talents at the service of God. Remember that our human limitations and weaknesses need not deter us from responding generously to God’s will.
