Jesus went up to the mountain and summoned those he wanted and they came to him. He appointed Twelve, whom he also named Apostles…
The choosing of the Apostles takes place on a mountain. Later, the Transfiguration is witnessed on a mountain. You agony, Lord, is endured on a mount. On each of these occasions, you choose followers to accompany you.
Take me to the mountain with you, Lord, and show me your will. Then, If I have to go alone into the desert, I will know that you are still with me.
How can I be your disciple today? I want to stay home, but if you send me out, I will listen. There is time now to be still in you. Thank you for silence and peace.
