St. John Fisher Roman Catholic Church

30 Jones Hollow Road, Marlborough, CT 06447

We all have “to do” or “honey do” lists. We oftentimes check off the list first what’s easiest to do, then gradually, the harder ones. Finally we are left with the hardest or the least attractive, like weeding the garden after letting it go for 6 weeks or cleaning out the garage, a closet, or that junk drawer.

We also have a priority list of what we hope to accomplish in our lives: finish school; find a job and/or a career; for most of you: get married, buy a house, have and raise children; maybe travel or have a beach house or a cabin in the woods; save for retirement; enjoy the grandkids; and eventually retire.

We often forget one thing on our “to do” and priority list: become a disciple. Being a disciple doesn’t necessarily mean leaving our families as Elisha and the would-be followers of Jesus in today’s Gospel were called to do.

More often than not it means staying right where we are and caring for those God has placed in our reach, to “serve one another through love”: our families, our community, our fellow workers, or classmates.
In this way we are fulfilling what Jesus asks of us: “… proclaim the kingdom of God” (Lk. 9:60), as missionaries at home, right where we are.
