Wednesday of the Twenty Sixth Week in Ordinary Time ‘a’

I wonder sometimes what I would be doing today if I wasn’t a priest. I wonder what my profession would be. Perhaps I would have my own family, children -- who knows. But I made a choice once and became a priest, and I am who I am. Maybe you also wonder if you made a right choice, for example by living in this town and not in another one, or by marrying that particular person, or if you chose the right profession. Jesus reminds us today that instead of looking back, we must use what we have and where we are today to proclaim His Kingdom. We can’t look back but must follow Jesus wherever we are today and whoever we are. “No one who sets a hand to the plow and looks to what was left behind is fit for the Kingdom of God.” Maybe you could have become a priest, or a nun, or a teacher, or doctor. You could have lived in another country or town. But you are here right now, and still have the same mission of proclaiming the Good News of salvation.
