Come, follow me

Today as we celebrate the Feast of St. James, there is a reminder of one of the most basic things we must do in order to follow Christ, lay down everything.  We hear the story of Christ walking along and seeing the brothers, James and John, and calling to them to “follow me”.  Christ calls us each day to follow him and we must look at our lives and determine what we must stop doing in order to respond to that call.  James left everything, including his father, to follow the Lord.  He ultimately gave his life by responding to this call.  Am I willing to give up everything in order to respond to His call?
