Have You Accepted His Invitation?

During the course of our lifetimes we receive countless invitations. Some we accept; others we decline. Many we simply ignore, even those with a R.S.V.P.

Some of us give little or no thought to how our response or failure to respond to those invitations impacts the person who thought enough of us to invite us in the first place. 

God is constantly inviting us to a more intimate relationship with Him. Does He not deserve an affirmative response?


  1. I am reminded here of how St. Bernadette used to walk around her convent weeping for all the graces she failed to correspond with. If even a great saint is like this, how pitiful am I!

      The truth of what you have written is engraved in our hearts. We think a little too highly of ourselves. It would be well for us to ponder St. Bernadette's actions.
