Gospel: Matthew 8:12-22
"Let me go first..." - cf Mt 8:21
Sometimes in our following of Jesus we tend to prioritize our own will first. Even though our reasons seem justifiable for us, still Jesus is inviting us to follow Him first and to let Him take care of the rest.
As we try to rely on ourselves less, we begin to trust in Him more deeply. Hence, we are being called to pray sincerely and listen to what He wills, instead of hearing only our own hearts’ desire.
Mother Mary, as someone who entrusted your life entirely to God’s will, please guide us.
