Join us as we reflect, ponder, and pray together inspired by today's Gospel.

Today's Gospel: Mark 16:15-20

Last year, someone close to me made a startling confession. This person also happened to be in a position of authority and their confession affected many, many people. It was disturbing, disheartening, and honestly, downright infuriating. It brought confusion, disbelief and anger to the hearts of many and when it was all said and done, a deep sadness.

Due to my position at the time, I was able to intervene in this person’s life. Although it was not received favorably at first, after several months, I heard those two powerful words: “Thank you!”

As Christians, we have the opportunity, time and time again to intervene, evangelize and pray for our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ. The occasion to do so may not be as catastrophic as what I experienced, but is equally as important if our intention is to guide others to Christ.

This is not something we do of our own accord, rather something Jesus Himself asks of us.

“Go into the whole world and proclaim the Gospel to every creature.”

And just like the apostles, who “went forth and preached everywhere, while the Lord worked with them and confirmed the word through accompanying signs,” we too are called to share our faith. And as we do, among other things, he promises recovery. Whether the malady be in the form of repetitive sin, physical or mental illness, addiction or otherwise, He promises recovery.

So let us not be afraid to go out to all the world and spread the good news, just as St. Mark the Evangelist did. Whether that means we evangelize to our domestic church at home, within our parish, our local community or beyond, may we allow God to use us to proclaim the truth of His Gospel.




In what capacity has God been nudging you to share the Gospel?



Lord Jesus, you guide us with Your Holy Spirit to spread Your word. Help us to be open to what You may be asking of us and grant us the grace to not be afraid to do it.
