APOSTLES  in the  APOSTOLATE

for  EVANGELIZATION

 

After the Ascension of the Lord, but before Pentecost,

the eleven remaining apostles gathered with about 120 in the Upper Room,

including some women, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and his brothers.

Peter stood in the midst of the brothers and said,

...Therefore, it is necessary that one of those who accompanied us

the whole time the Lord Jesus came and went among us,

beginning from the baptism of John

until the day on which he was taken up from us,

become with us a witness to his resurrection...

They chose Matthias,

and he was counted with the eleven apostles.

See the Book of Acts 1:13-15,21,22

 

So could you stand up in front of ten people, or sitting tell just one,

- the story of the baptism of Jesus?

- the story of the three years of teaching and preaching and healing ministry?

- the story of the Passion and Crucifixion of Jesus?

- the story of the Easter appearances of Christ the Risen Lord?

Baptized disciple of Jesus Christ, sure you could, for this is your story.

And so, you meet St. Peter's qualifications to be

an apostle, a witness to the Resurrection.

- Fr. Steve Wolf, Pastor 

 

THE  NEW  EVANGELIZATION  is primarily

the 'clear and unequivocal proclamation of the person of Jesus Christ,

that is, the preaching of his name, his teaching, his life, his promises

and the Kingdom which he has gained for us by his Paschal Mystery.'

- Saint Pope John Paul II, 1999

The Church in America, #66

It involves the active participation of every Christian in the proclamation

and demonstration that the Christian faith is the fully valid response

to the problems and hopes that life poses to every person and society.

 - Saint Pope John Paul II, 1988

Christifideles Laici, #36
