"When the time for Pentecost was fulfilled, they were all in one place together. And suddenly there came from the sky a noise like a strong driving wind, and it filled the entire house in which they were. Then there appeared to them tongues as of fire, which parted and came to rest on each one of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in different tongues, as the Spirit enabled them to proclaim."
The same Holy Spirit is here to enable the Church of today to overcome our contemporary fears and the hurdles to evangelization. To overcome, we must humble ourselves so that the Holy Spirit can renew in the heart of today's Church a fresh new boldness and again make alive the signs and wonders it has experienced over the centuries. We need no program, no plan, no money or budget to evangelize in the Name of Jesus through the power of the Holy Spirit!
"Peter said, “I have neither silver nor gold, but what I do have I give you: in the name of Jesus Christ the Nazorean, [rise and] walk. Then Peter took him by the right hand and raised him up, and immediately his feet and ankles grew strong. He leaped up, stood, and walked around, and went into the temple with them, walking and jumping and praising God."
and if one is believed to be too uneducated or ordinary to evangelize, then consider this:
"Observing the boldness of Peter and John and perceiving them to be uneducated, ordinary men, they were amazed, and they recognized them as the companions of Jesus."
INVITATION TO ALL:
We invite parishes to contact this office with your evangelization questions, problems, issues and/or needs. This office understands that all parishes are unique. Whether it be Retreats, Missions, Days of Reflection, Prayer Meetings or presentations to your Parish Pastoral Council and/or Evangelization Committee and/or parish ministires, this office would be glad to meet and help design something that specfically meets your particular parish requirements.
Additionally, if you are not in the formal parish administrational structure but have an organization and/or prayer group and/or ministry and want to know more about evangelizing right where you are planted, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Finally, maybe you need only prayer. Certainly, call us for that as well.
