Tuesday, Feast of St. Bartholomew, Apostle
Are you excited about your faith? Are you happy to know Jesus? So many of us Christians today keep our faith and our religion to ourselves. Some of us don’t want to share the excitement of having a personal relationship with the Lord. And if we do not, we will not be able to bring others to Him. And isn’t that our call? Read the Gospel for today and see what Philip did. “Philip found Nathanael and told him, we have found the one about whom Moses wrote in the law, and also the prophets, Jesus son of Joseph, from Nazareth.” Philip is eager and very delighted to share his excitement of finding Jesus with his friend and with other people. And through his joy and excitement, he brings them to Jesus. We should learn from Philip today and ask Jesus to fill our hearts with the same joy that Philip had by finding the Lord.
