FEAST OF BARTHOLOMEW, APOSTLE
Caught up in prayer

If you met Jesus face-to-face and he saw right through you—straight into your soul—and told you exactly what you had been doing before meeting him, what would he see and what would he say? Would he judge that you were honest and good? That you had spent the prior moment in prayer? That’s what happened to the Apostle Bartholomew upon being introduced to Jesus. Let’s always be ready to be “caught in the act” of communing with God, with a pure heart, recognizing our King when he greets us.

Today's readings:

Revelation 21:9b-14; John 1:45-51 (629).

“You will see greater things than this.”
