The Gospel of today's Mass - the call of the first disciples - leads us into the Mystery of evangelisation through friendship. Christ himself evangelises through friendship. We hear how he spent the whole night in prayer - He is living an intimate relationship with His Father - he comes down from the hills and calls his first disciples - he wishes to share the relationship which he has with His Father with others. He chooses those who are open to his call. Those who ask questions or who have other matters to attend to first He leaves behind. Those whom He chooses do not know what lies ahead but they receive the call to live in community with Him and to have a deeper experience of His life and of His person. We respond to His call when we allow Him to establish our lives on His friendship and seek to build a simple rule of life with Him which will allow us to spend time with Him. Beginning the day in prayer, entering into the Gospel, taking part in daily Mass, if we can, spending some time in prayer with Him - especially in front of the Tabernacle, if we can, and ending the day with a short examination of conscience and thanksgiving. This friendship is at the heart of being a Catholic today.
