In today’s Gospel reading from the Mass (Luke 14:25-33), Jesus reminds us that to be His disciple we must take up our crosses. For me, it is the little and larger things in life that I do not have answers for. Living in them and waiting for the answers faithfully is how I become a disciple of Jesus. We are all called to live faithfully and patiently within the challenges that come our way. To do so with joy in Christ is our calling.
