Put out into the deep
In #130 in the Exhortation on Holiness, Pope Francis says: "How often we are tempted to keep close to the shore! Yet the Lord calls us to put out into the deep and let down our nets.
He bids us spend our lives in his service. Clinging to him, we are inspired to put all our charisms at the service of others. May we always feel compelled by his love (2 Cor 5:14) and say with Saint Paul: 'Woe to me if I do not preach the Gospel'..."
I find so much to reflect upon in this Exhortation. We preach the Gospel by the way we live. Am I ready to put out into the deep?
