Second Sunday in Ordinary Time (Year B) – Call of Samuel
The call of the boy Samuel in today’s first reading is rather striking. We notice that the Lord chooses to speak to Samuel in the midst of the messiness of his surroundings – here he is in the temple where the faithful brought their offerings to be sacrificed. Samuel we discover is called by name and called repeatedly. How persistent is our God! Perhaps we have missed the call of God in our daily lives because we have been half asleep, inattentive or confused. Just as Samuel needs an elder like Eli to lead and guide him, so too we need mentors who remind us to adopt Samuel’s beautiful prayer of openness to the living God: “Speak, Lord, for your servant is listening.
With my love and prayers,
