In what ways can you help in harvesting people for God’s Kingdom? - Daily Bible Reflections July 8,2014


A PROMISE IS
A PROMISE
 
The harvest is abundant but the laborers are few. – Matthew 9:37
 
       I was with a group of young women having a weekend search-in at the Camillian Sisters’ formation house in Antipolo. I was there because after my Holy Land pilgrimage, I felt I wanted to give my whole life to God.
       At the end of the two-day retreat, we had varying realizations. I realized I didn’t have an authentic call to the religious life. I sat on the grass and I mused about how I would proceed with my life. At that point, I made a solemn promise to God: that even if He didn’t call me to the religious life, I will help others find their vocation.
          It was a promise that was to be fulfilled in various ways.
       In early 2000, I wrote for Rogate Ergo, the vocations promotion magazine of the Rogationist Fathers in the Philippines. For a semester, I taught human development to seminarians and sisters. For a while, I gave support to a seminarian in a seminary within our village.
       Now that I am back as a contributing writer for Rogate Ergo Asia, I remember that promise I made a long time ago.
       It’s not yet finished — for the harvest is abundant but the laborers are few. Tess V. Atienza (svp_tvatienza@yahoo.com)
 
Reflection: In what ways can you help in harvesting people for God’s Kingdom?
 
Send me, Lord, where the harvest is.
 
St. Gregory Grassi and Companions, pray for us.
