Hearing the Word of God doesn't have to be done alone
by Sister Carolyn Zahringer
Sunday's readings focus on call and response. Samuel doesn't know about the call until Eli assists his response.
St. Paul sets before us a question we all must "hear" and respond to: "Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own? For you have been purchased at a price. Therefore, glorify God with your body." (1 Cor. 6:19-20) How we do that is up to us daily. We are part of the Mystical Body of Christ. Every day we are being called to "come". What are we being called to?
The Gospel tells of Andrew telling his brother, Peter, about Jesus. Peter responded to the call delivered by Andrew. Can we hear a "call" in the daily happenings of our life?
