"I don't know what your destiny will be, but one thing I know: the only ones among you who will be really happy are those who will have sought and found how to serve." (Albert Schweitzer)
 
HE WAS THE FIRST TO ANNOUNCE
 
"I don't know what your destiny will be, but one thing I know: the only ones among you who will be really happy are those who will have sought and found how to serve." (Albert Schweitzer)
 
Deacon John Ruscheinsky
 
In today's Gospel, John the Baptist proclaims as he sees Jesus Christ coming toward him: "Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world." John recognizes the person of Jesus as the long awaited Messiah, and with his profession of faith he invites us to profess our own faith, the faith of the Catholic Church, in the Jesus of history and the Christ of faith.
 
When St. Augustine would call the people to communion, he would show them the consecrated bread and wine and say, "Behold what you are; become what you receive." For we are what we eat! Augustine recognized the multiple presences of Christ Jesus: present in his church as it assembled to celebrate Eucharist, and present too under the forms of bread and wine. The Eucharist then helps us to grow in holiness and wholeness.
 
In today's Responsorial Psalm we acclaim: Here am I, Lord; I come to do your will. "Prescribed for me, to do your will, O my God, is my delight, and your law is within my heart!"  God you have opened my ears, that I may hear your word, obey your will, and follow your law of love. "Behold what you are."
 
I read in a commentary that a great scholar and physician Albert Schweitzer wrote this: "I don't know what your destiny will be, but one thing I know: the only ones among you who will be really happy are those who will have sought and found how to serve.
 
Points to Pray and Ponder: "Behold what you are; become what you receive."
