Our Father wants us to draw near to Him so He can show us a new way to live.

How is Jesus going to help us to accomplish our mission? We find the answer in the Holy Gospels. St. Mark tells us that on a particular occasion, Jesus sat and taught His people at great length. Jesus so desires to do the same with each of us. He wants to sit down with us, as He is not in a hurry or a rush; He doesn't have something more important than you!

Jesus so desires to engage each one of us! He has something to tell us. He has something to ask of us. Some of us might object: I'm just a kid. Adults are important. What could Jesus possibly have to say to me? Others might object: I am old now and I have so many aches and pains. My life is simple and hidden. Lastly, some of us might object: I have such an ordinary life. I go to work and do the same thing day after day. Plus, I don't have my act together. By getting to know some people just like us and their stories, we shall see that Jesus has something to say to all of us.
