Give to God what belongs to God.

Even today Jesus continues to call
men and women of every nation.
He enters our lives and makes us feel
his invitation to follow him.

He calls us to build a close relationship with him
and to join with him in creating a new humanity.
He does not care about our weakness, our sins.
He loves us and chooses us just as we are.
He gives us the strength to answer his call.

He has a special love for each of us
and a plan for each person's life.
The call of Jesus asks us to care for

In our work, our home, our community.
So let us love God in each person
and answer his call to follow him.
