Remain in my love The original twelve disciples was a sinful community. Judas betrayed Jesus. Peter denied knowing Jesus thrice. The rest, save for the Beloved, deserted Jesus upon his arrest. And yet God continued to entrust the Gospel of salvation to this fragile community of disciples. Moreover, the Lord will continuously rehabilitate his Church not by providing us blueprints to follow but by guiding us in our discernment of his will. Hence, after praying over whom to succeed Judas, the disciples chose Matthias. We are sinful yet called by God. We are fragile yet ever guided by the Spirit of the Lord.
