Evangelization        

April 25 ~ Fourth Sunday of Easter

“I am the good shepherd, I know mine and mine know me.”  These words from today’s Gospel hold both comfort and challenge!  How well do you know Christ?  Do you recognize his voice when he speaks to you?  Do you willingly follow him as one of his sheep, as one of his disciples?  Following the Good Shepherd takes faith, courage and an open heart.  Take time this week in prayer to listen to the voice of our Good Shepherd.  Pray for the grace to be responsive to his call to discipleship.

May 2 ~ Fifth Sunday of Easter

Companioning others is part of being a disciple.  In our first reading, we hear that Saul, having encountered Christ, is companioned by Barnabas to meet with the disciples in Jerusalem.  In the gospel, Jesus assures us that he is guiding and companioning us.   “Whoever remains in me and I in him will bear much fruit, because without you can do nothing.” With Christ, we have the ability to be his disciples. During this Easter season, we have many examples of disciples accompanied by Christ doing the work of evangelization.  Whom Christ be inviting you to companion on their faith journey?  What is holding you back? 

May 9 ~ Sixth Sunday of Easter

Today’s Scriptures speaks loud and clear: “Let us love one another. . .” and “This is my commandment, love one another.”  The love that we share is not our own, but rather it is the love God has for us.  Love is a powerful means of evangelization.  The love of a faithful disciple shows no partiality and draws people to Jesus Christ.  So, take the scripture to heart this week – keep your eyes open and your spirit alert for the grace to be an expression of God’s love wherever it is needed the most.

May 16 ~ Seventh Sunday of Easter

Listen closely to today’s gospel.  It is as if we are eavesdropping on Jesus at prayer.  Notice that he is praying for you!  He is asking God to protect you, to keep you from the evil one and to consecrate you in the truth.  Take some quiet time today to listen again to Jesus prayer for you.  Have confidence that God hears Christ’s prayer, that he is with you and strengthens your discipleship.

May 23 ~ Pentecost Sunday

“Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful and kindle in them the fire of your love.”  The disciples caught that fire and went about telling everyone the wondrous things God had done.  What wondrous things has God done in your life that you can share with others?  Ask the Holy Spirit to kindle the fire of his love in your heart, freeing you to proclaim the greatness of God.  Then, like the disciples go forth and share that “good news” with others.

May 30 ~ Solemnity of the Most Blessed Trinity

Listen intently to the readings at Mass this weekend, they leave no room for doubt as to the message.  YOU have been commissioned, right along with the disciples to. . . Go… Baptize… Teach.  All strong imperatives.  Perhaps even more important – is the last line in the gospel: “…. I am with you always, until the end of the age.”  Evangelization is the work of the whole Church – and that includes you.  He is with you ALWAYS, no matter the times or circumstances.  So - take Christ’s commissioning to heart and spread the Good News!
