CALLED TO BE
"Here I am" is Isaiah's recognition that he was present and available to respond to God.  
Deacon John Ruscheinsky
 
In today's first reading the prophet Isaiah writes of his heavenly vision of God and his angels in the Temple, and of his purification from sin. We who have been cleansed through the Sacrament of Reconciliation can relate at least in a small way to Isaiah's joy at being cleansed from sin. And, daily we touch the sacramental Body of Christ. Those of us who persevere in our participation in the Eucharist have answered for ourselves in some way these questions about what prayer and worship means to us. Worship is, no matter how colored, the center of Christian life, and from it should flow all the good of Christian activity. Isaiah's vision was not just a private consolation for him; at the end of this scene we hear him responding to our heavenly Father's call with "Here I am...send me! (Is 6:8). We can think about these two simple yet powerful statements of Isaiah. "Here I am" is Isaiah's recognition that he was present and available to respond to God. Just so, each of us can say I am present. I am someone, I am called to be in God's kingdom. Further, it is a recognition of the unique talents each of us have. God has blessed each of us with a personality, creativity, and spirit.
 
Points to Pray and Ponder: Jesus declares that God will not abandon us. He watches over each one carefully, counts the hairs of our head, and knows we are more valuable than sparrows. Trusting this we gain much strength! In the responsorial psalm we acclaim, The Lord is king; he is robed in majesty (Ps 93).
Praying this today should help us realize - daily life is easier because He is God. "Send me."
