The more I learn about our religion, the more I find myself impressed with the Apostles.
Today, just one phrase from Sunday's Gospel reading added to my admiration:
"At once, they left their nets and followed Him" (Mt 4:20)
These everyday fisherman left their life behind and followed a man they really didn't know or understand. No pause. Without hesitation. Immediately.
They followed our Savior from the moment He called them, right up until to their own death ... despite the questions and confusion they certainly faced.
I wonder if I would have had that conviction.
Heck, I know the way the story ends and it's still not easy to always say "yes"!
