Our own stories and lives bear the marks of those first disciples whose trust and courage brought us to Jesus. With them we can face the fears, equivocations, and drawings-back they knew on their own path into fullness of life in Christ. Like them, through repentance and faithful belief in the good news, we acknowledge our own failings –which become the paradoxical means to union with God and one another through Jesus’ call.
