Weekend Reflections for 9/25/15

Many of the readings for the final days of September continue to focus on the demands of discipleship. However I believe for many of us our focus has been on the example of discipleship that we've seen in Pope Francis as he makes his visits first Cuba and then to the United States. He meets with our president, he speaks to our government leaders and then has lunch with the ordinary people and the very poorest of people Washington DC

Probably never before have the people in our country been so fascinated by the unassuming manner of our religious leader and in the way he lives out his understanding of his discipleship of Christ. It seems that people of all faiths embrace him and his manner of doing this. Many of other faiths even referred to him as "our" Pope.

We are blessed with a living example of what discipleship means when lived out and how it can transform one into an apostle of Jesus love, mercy and joy. May we be so blessed that each of us in our own way in our own circumstances can embrace and live out the example of Pope Francis.
