In the gospel of Mark, Jesus tells us that Mary’s blessing as a disciple exceeds her blessing as His mother. What more evidence do we need of our lofty call?

Timothy and Titus are further examples of how ready God is to befriend us. To be a friend of Jesus is to be a citizen of heaven.

Dear Jesus, may I rejoice today in Your friendship. May my fidelity to You make others interested in getting to know You, and to be known by You.
