The Gospel today explains how Jesus fired up his followers by telling them that a decision to follow him has no “if’s or but’s”! We are all a valuable part of a community and we need to pull forward like one body to follow in Jesus’ footsteps. Jesus asks for real commitment - he doesn’t say “whenever you think you might follow me, have a go”, Jesus says the time for commitment for stepping up to our faith, is now. It is our baptismal promise to try to share the good news; the love of God the father each day on our ordinary road. If we keep waiting for the right moment, the sands of time will run quickly through our fingers.

The remains of John Curry, youngest witness of the apparition at Knock, buried since 1943 in an unmarked grave on New York’s Long Island, are to be exhumed and re-buried in the cemetery of Manhattan’s St Patrick’s Old Cathedral. Although his grave was unmarked it was possible to identify it from good record-keeping and the burial being in a plot owned by the Little Sisters of the Poor with whom he lived in his final years. John was five years old when he witnessed the 1879 apparition, and settled in the US in 1910. The reinterment is scheduled for next spring. St Patrick’s was felt to be a fitting spot for the burial as Fr Richard Gibbons (Knocks rector) said it was home to one of the city’s oldest cemeteries.

Jesus is the Son of Man, the Messiah, the Christ, the one who has come into this world. He will prove this not just by the great miracles he works, but by his ultimate display of love; his death on the cross, and his resurrection on the 3rd day. The Passion is never out of season. His death is our life, and by believing in him and power of his cross we all have the promise of eternal life, by the forgiveness of our sins. 
Friday 24th June: The Nativity of St John the Baptist… We rejoice at the coming of St John the Baptist, a man of self-denial, integrity of life and purpose and an uncompromising prophetic voice. John means “the Lord of life and purpose”. This feast relates to the summer solstice, when the days begins to grow shorter recalling John’s words “He must increase but I must decrease”

Saints and Sinners: Jesus never shut anyone down or out. Jesus’ ministry included everyone and anyone; saints as well as sinners. He shows us that we must cease to judge and exclude, rather we must accept and include. Jesus shows us that not even the least worthy among us is left out, everyone is welcome in God’s love. How can I show this in my daily routine? Do I give wicked looks? Do I choose only certain people to mix with? Because others may not have the right gear or a cool attitude, do I avoid them? What part of today’s Gospel speaks to my lack of tolerance and superiority complex today?
