Over the years I have been blessed to minister in many parishes. I have been privileged to be with folds in their hopes and hardships, dreams and diﬃculties, triumphs and tragedies. I have witnessed God’s goodness and grace in weddings, wakes and the wonders of weekend worship. Half of my priesthood has been spent ministering in towns of less than 5000 people. Small town ministry has its own built in blessings. People know each other by name. There is a natural sense of community and connectedness. There is a connection between the Church and the public school system that beneﬁts both. High School ball games and weekend Masses are the largest community gatherings. Small town values are often Gospel values. Interactions are not limited to just one hour in Church once a week. Opportunity for building up the body of believers abounds in small town USA. Our CPPS parishes in Mercer, Putnam, and Auglaize counties have been served by us for over 150 years. My service in these parishes has enriched my life. A decade ago and for nearly a decade Br. Bernie Barga, CPPS, and I did youth work in and around Maria Stein Spiritual Center. Our eﬀorts were enhanced by the God Squad of high school students who collaborated with us. A song we frequently sang was “Saul, Saul, the apostle Paul meanest Pharisee of the all. Damascus was his course when the Lord knocked him oﬀ his horse.” To be continued ...

Reading II : 1 Corinthians 7:29-31 The time is short. • Early in his ministry, Paul expected the second coming of Jesus at any moment. • Paul points out in todayʹs reading that happiness and security can not be found in material things. • All other things are subordinate to life in Jesus. Gospel : Mark 1:14-20 Come, follow me. • Markʹs Gospel reveals Jesus to be the fulﬁllment of the promised Messiah. • Jesus is the Good News. • In todayʹs passage, the ﬁrst disciples respond immediately to Jesus call to have faith in the good news. Question for Children: What do you think it was like for the people in todayʹs Gospel to be called by Jesus? Question for Adults: If someone asked you, ʺTo what work has Jesus called you?ʺ how would you answer?
