Let us be sent
Now we have many disappointments in life, and they are all fuel for abandonment to the will of God. In the Church today, we are losing the sense of mission. We are no longer sent. The Father sent the Son, the Son sent the apostles, the apostles sent us. We don't want to be sent; we want to choose where we go. We want our options. So we can never be very sure that we are doing God's will. We are sure that we are doing our own, and, generally, when we get what we want, we don't like it. Please God, we'll soon ask him, 'Lord, what do you want me to do? Just tell me.'
