Thank you to all who prayed for Saturday’s door-to-door evangelization effort. I can’t emphasize enough how appreciative I am.
The effort went well. We had a smaller-than-usual crowd (due to numerous factors) so we were only able to visit about 200 homes. But it was worthwhile. We had a number of stories of positive encounters, and a few instances of real interest. Personally, I met a young father whose family moved to the area about a year ago; they are Catholic but have not been to Mass since they moved here. I understand the intimidation factor involved in going to a new parish, so I made every effort to know that we would love to have him at our parish and that we had a lot of young families there. Hopefully he will overcome his hesitation and start coming – say a prayer for him.
We will never know how our actions on Saturday impacted the people we met, but I feel that we gave the Holy Spirit instruments that He could use as He wills.
Make an effort today to share the Gospel with someone, either in words or in your actions; you could make an eternal difference!
St. Paul, pray for us!
