Many of us will not become celebrities. However, that does not make who we are and the work that we do any less important. Saints Simon and Jude were not as famous as the rest of the Twelve Apostles, but that didn't mean that Jesus loved them any less. Take a few minutes to contemplate the fact that, even though you may never be famous, Jesus still loves you and is calling you to great things.
Holy One, we thank you today for the Simons and the Judes of the world. They are not the stars or the popular heroes, but they remain loyal and are good followers. They are an essential part of your Reign here on earth. (Taken from "Good News Day by Day: Bible Reflections for Teens.")
