polaris of my soul

On Sunday, the feast of John the Baptist, father gave an amazing homily (which I was very distracted during, and mostly didn't pay attention to until the end). It was about a statue of John the Baptist which resides in the Vatican. (I think?) Visitors encounter a statue of John, gaping, which points the way to Christ.

This, I realized, is exactly what being a Vision mentor is all about. It's about pointing those who encounter you towards Christ. And, in life in general, that is the calling of the Christian. To live in a way that points towards Christ constantly.

Vision Week Two: answering the call to be prophets of a future not our own. And, as our parish priest, according to mother said: being a prophet doesn't mean speaking the future, but speaking the truth.
