It is amazing how fast and far news spreads in this day and age, isn’t it?
With a few letters typed from your fingertips to form a text, then hit send – it’s out. Words or an image posted on social media – it’s out.
Can you imagine if Jesus came back today what it would be like for Him to get His message out?
In this coming Sunday’s First Reading, it mentions how after Saints Paul and Barnabas told the people of a city the Good News about Jesus, many became disciples.
They did this by walking there, then talking with people as they walked around the city – all word of mouth, face to face.
Paul and Barnabas had proclaimed the good news to that city and made a considerable number of disciples… Acts 14:21
After months of Catechists sharing about the Good News to our families in First Reconciliation, First Holy Communion, and youth and adults in Confirmation, they are now going to celebrate those Sacraments.
The children, youth, and adults are disciples who will encounter God’s grace in the next couple of weeks. Let’s keep them all in our prayers.
Face to face, word of mouth sharing about Jesus and His Church still forms disciples! I hope you are sharing within your family and with friends about what Jesus’ love means to you.
Bless someone by telling them about a God moment you’ve had today!
