Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Parish is a faith-filled community for all cultures and ages dedicated to building the Kingdom of God. We come closer to God by following Jesus Christ through His Word and the Sacraments. Through the Holy Spirit and with the intercession of our Blessed Mother, we provide a sense of belonging to all God's people through prayer, service and the sharing of our gifts for the praise and glory of God.

WE ARE CALLED

      We are called to be servants, we are called to be Holy, and we are called by the Son of God.  This is the scripture messages in this week’s readings.  Even our responsorial psalm declares “Here I am Lord, I come to do your will.”
      What does it mean to be a servant?  Does it mean to wait hand and foot on someone as a slave would?  No, slaves have no choice in the actions dictated by the master, it’s either obey, or there will be consequences.  Does one need to be clergy or a religious to be considered a servant of God?  No, Priests, Deacons, Nuns or religious Brothers have definitely chosen to be servants in very specific ways, but anyone who worships God is called to be a servant.  There are three attributes in being a servant of God.

Availability, we must be available and willing to do the will of God.  Surrendering oneself to follow the example God the Father left us in His Son Jesus even if it means that we’ll be given over to ridicule and persecution.   Remember the stories of some Prophets like Isaiah, Jeremiah, Moses, Gideon, Samuel, Ezekiel, and Jonah who were reluctant to be available but finally surrendered themselves to become servants to God.
Alert, be watchful and attentive to hear what God has for us to do. Be patient while waiting to hear where He needs us to be of service.  I find that it’s in the silence and calm that I hear Him speaking to me clearest.  Try just sitting somewhere in silence, maybe in the Blessed Sacrament in front of the Tabernacle.
Obedience, God calls us to a variety of tasks to help build His kingdom here.  A good servant joyfully accepts and carries out these tasks.  We may be given things that are consistent with our spiritual gifts and talents, sometimes it’s things that would make us feel very uncomfortable, and then maybe it may be to do nothing at all.  Don’t be afraid to do tasks that one would consider to be below oneself, don’t let pride hinder service to God and His people.

      What does it mean to be Holy?  To be Holy doesn’t mean you have to be perfect, pure or awe-inspiring.  There is a song we used to sing when I was in the 5 PM Saturday Mass choir called “Refiners Fire” and its words define what it means to be Holy.  The chorus goes “I choose to be Holy, set apart for you Lord, I choose to be Holy, set apart for you my master, ready to do your will.”  To be Holy more simply means to be “set apart” or “dedicated” to the service of God.  We become Holy when we stop trying to be shaped by the views of the world and begin to be shaped by the Spirit of God, and we can only do this through the mercy of God, the mercy extended to us when Jesus died on the cross.
       What does it mean to be called by the Son of God?  Our Gospel acclimation is “The Word of God became flesh and dwelt among us.  To those who accepted him, he gave power to become children of God.”  Jesus calls everyone to become part of His family no matter who they are, what they believe or how they live.  Mary is the greatest example of someone being called by God, Joseph too for that matter, the Apostles; the list could go on and on.  Being called by Jesus is an invitation to discover the real meanings of belonging, happiness and truth.  I won’t say that being called won’t have its share of problems though, just look at the martyred, their lives were difficult yet they heard the call and chose to follow that call despite the outcomes.
      Jesus calls us, He calls us to serve and He calls us to be Holy.  If you think about it, this week’s scripture message can all be accomplished in Jesus’ commandment to “Love others as you love yourself.”
