OUR THEME FOR 2019
(Part 21)

FAMILIES ON MISSION – 5


February 3, 2019

Today’s readings:
Jeremiah 1:4-5, 17-19
Psalm 71:1-6, 15-17


As baptized Catholics, we are called to be priests, kings and prophets. Such is our destiny. This is much like the prophet Jeremiah. “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I dedicated you, a prophet to the nations I appointed you.” (Jer 1:5). God’s intent from all eternity is that we proclaim God’s word to the ends of the earth.

From the time we were conceived and born, we look to God. “You are my hope, Lord; my trust, God, from my youth. On you I have depended since birth; from my mother’s womb you are my strength” (Ps 71:5-6a). If God is to use us for His divine work, then He prepares us by forming us in our home and family life.

Then, as disciples of Jesus, we are to obey him. We are to speak what God commands us to speak. God tells Jeremiah, “But you, prepare yourself; stand up and tell them all that I command you.” (Jer 1:17a). And what does God command us today? It is to proclaim the gospel of salvation in Jesus. “My mouth shall proclaim your just deeds, day after day your acts of deliverance” (Ps 71:15a).

What does all this make of us? We are to be families on mission. We are formed in the family, so that God might send us forth to do His mission. “God, you have taught me from my youth; to this day I proclaim your wondrous deeds.” (Ps 71:17).
