Year of Faith: A Reflection for Catechetical Leaders
Luke 9 verse 62: [To him] Jesus said, “No one who sets a hand to the plow and looks to what was left behind is fit for the kingdom of God.” General Directory of
Catechesis, no. 80. “Catechesis seeks to help those newly converted to Christ to know Jesus better: his ‘mystery,’ the kingdom of God he proclaimed, the requirements and comments in his Gospel message, and his paths for anyone wanting to follow him.”
Jesus surprised his disciples by telling them that they must not look back but keep their focus on the goal set for their lives—full happiness and union with God. Is there anything holding you back from pursuing the Lord and his will for your life?
