Today’s readings can be found here.
Today the Church celebrates the feast day of two Apostles, Saints Philip and James. In today’s gospel reading, Jesus poses a question to Philip, “Have I been with you for so long a time and you still do not know me, Philip?” How true that question is for all of us. For no matter how much we study, how much time we spend in prayer, Lectio Divina, how many times we receive the sacraments, we will still have so much more to learn about Jesus.
So if you think you still have so much more to learn about Jesus, the Scriptures or the Catholic Church, fear not! We all are in the same boat together. Let us not be inhibited by or fears or perceived inadequacies, rather, may we be inspired by the example of Sts. Phillip and James to continue everyday to grow in our knowledge and love of God.
