"You are a WHAT?!?!?" I wish I had a nickel for every time I have heard this question asked when people ask me what I do. Some would say, "Isn't that an Oxymoron? Catholic and Evangelist?" Why should it be an oxymoron? Are we not all called to spread the Gospel?
Matthew 28:19 clearly states that we must "Go…make disciples of all nations…" I don't think Jesus, suggested it, asked us to fit it in between meetings, football and/or other athletic practices. He did not say, only on Sunday's, or just every now and then. This was a Commandment by our Lord, for ALL of us to go and make disciples, but so many of us have no clue how to begin.
First we must know who we are as Children of God. We must first understand our own Faith and why we are placed on this earth and that is to Know, Love and Serve our Lord. We must love each other as Christ has loves each of us.
We "proclaim" the Gospel in our everyday lives when we truly LIVE the Gospel every day, in our marriages, celibate life, as young people, older/retired people, we live the Gospel when we help people and love them unconditionally. We live the Gospel each day when we protect Life; the lives of both the unborn and those who are born. We live the Gospel when we serve our fellow man and woman without asking for anything in return.
This is our challenge daily, as St. Paul exhorted us to "Die to our flesh." We must die to the desires of this world and live in the Spirit which will show us the Way…the Way of Christ who is our Mediator. Let us die to ourselves each day, so that we may Live Eternally with our Father in Heaven.
Keep us in your prayers, we will keep you in ours and never forget… "KEEP ON KEEPIN ON!"
