Message from Fr. Colin
“What are you looking for?” As we see with the disciples, that rather pointed and direct question may not be as easy to answer as we might think, yet this question is central to our calling to discipleship. As Jesus encounters those he wants to be his followers, he says to them, simply, “follow me.” When Jesus encountered the rich young man, the man asked, “what must I do to inherit eternal life?” to which Jesus responded: "go, sell what you own, and give the money to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; then come, follow me" (Mark 10:17, 21).
What we ought to be looking for, therefore, is not a list of things that we would like or expect Jesus to do for us. Rather, we should be seeking out how best to follow Him, how best to walk with Him. The answer to the question “what are you looking for?” is found in the simple offering of ourselves to him; it is to be a disciple.
Pope Benedict points out that our encounter with God, our seeing Jesus, is done in large part through our discipleship, our following in Jesus footsteps. We can only encounter God, he says, by walking after Jesus; the only way we can see Him is by following Jesus. Seeing is going, is being on the way for our whole life toward the living God. As Jesus called his disciples, so too he calls us, saying very simply “follow me.”
