On this Feast of St. Philip and St. James, we hear about the many people who gave personal witness to the resurrection of Jesus Christ. There example inspires us to seek out ways that we can offer our own individual testimony of the Good News today.
Following the persecution of Stephen, the disciples travel and proclaim the Gospel to Jews and Gentiles. More people are joining the Church, and new believers are taking the initiative to share the Good News of Jesus Christ.
Filled with the Holy Spirit, Peter boldly addresses the Sanhedrin and proclaims the Good News of Jesus Christ. May his example in the face of opposition inspire us to call upon the Spirit every day for guidance and strength.
Blessed by the Lord, we give glory to Christ when we extend our blessings to those in need. As we alleviate the sufferings of others, our good deeds proclaim the Gospel as we become God’s salt and light in the world.
Merry Christmas! Depending on the Mass you attend, there are four different sets of readings. Yet as we ponder God’s love for our fallen world, may the hope in our hearts burst forth as we proclaim the Good News with tidings of glad joy: today is born our savior, Christ the Lord!
Mary encounters the angel Gabriel, who announces God’s saving power that comes to our world through Jesus Christ. May this Good News sustain us in our difficult moments…for nothing will be impossible for God!
