May 26, 2015 (Mark 10:28-31)

With Evening Prayer on Pentecost Sunday, we have returned to “Ordinary Time,” time that follows a number with the 8th Week in Ordinary Time. We’ll be in Ordinary Time until November 29 (the First Sunday of Advent). The predominant color will be green.

“We have given up everything and followed You,” Peter says in today’s gospel. We are all called to “Follow” Him in one way or another. Johann Sebastian Bach wrote “SDG” on each of his compositions. It stood for “to the glory of God alone.” Albert Schweitzer said that every one is called to serve other people. For him, that meant going to Africa. St. Philip Neri took care of pilgrims, prostitutes, and the poor. What is your “call”?
