TODAY’S WORD…

.

Jesus said,

“Go into all the world

and proclaim the Good News to the whole creation.”

– Mark 16:15 (NRSV)

.

.

Have reverence for Christ in your hearts,

and honour Him as Lord.

Be ready at all times

to answer anyone who asks you to explain the hope you have in you.

REFLECTION…

.

St. Pope John Paul II tells us

that as Christians we cannot remain unresponsive

to so much ignorance and so many errors

about Christ, His Church…the most fundamental truths,

for God has constituted us “the salt of the earth” (Matt 5:13) and “the light of the world.” (Matt 5:14)

Every Christian has to share in the task of Christian formation.

He has to feel the urgency of evangelising…

.

Nobody can opt out of this urgent task. .

The task of a Christian is to drown evil in an abundance of good.

It is not a question of negative campaigns, or of being ‘anti’ anything.

On the contrary, we should live positively, full of optimism,

with youthfulness, joy and peace.

We should be understanding with everybody,

with the followers of Christ and with those who abandon Him,

or with those who have never known Him at all.

Understanding does not mean holding back, or remaining indifferent, but being active. (St. Josemaria Escriva)

.

We need to have initiative,

to want everyone to see the lovable face of Christ,

and we ourselves need to beg the Lord to help us believe in Him and to love Him more and more.

.

.

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Lord, I need to believe in You and love You more and more.

Teach me to make You known,

and help me not to waste a single opportunity.

.

.

.
