PODCAST | Dinner with Jesus

[ View Transcript ]

In this podcast, Fr. Leo Agustina invites you to imagine inviting Jesus to dinner as he passes by you at home, your dorm, your office, your kitchen, or your desk. Would you welcome him and listen to him? Would you allow him to open your horizons and give meaning to your whole life? This was the way of St. Matthew (also called Levi) as we read in the Gospels.

Jesus was sending a huge message by passing by people at their jobs and at work. He is present, he is aware, and he really cares. But you must be humble enough to accept that your vocation means you inviting Jesus to meet you first, to talk to him, and to follow him.

Jesus says “follow me,” if you want to. The calling of St. Matthew reminds us that our vocation is a combination between our freedom and the grace of God–our freedom and his invitation–and that’s the beauty of every vocation. In every vocation, there’s a story to be told and to be unfolded. And, Jesus is happy to be creating that story together with the protagonist.

Our vocation is truly a treasure. But the principle and most important treasure of our life is our relationship with Jesus—-it’s the treasure that we should rediscover every single day.
