This report is a continuation of yesterday’s story and comes to us from team leader Lucy with our team in Boise, ID:
Occasional visitor “Michele”, with stroller and dog, stopped to chat a bit. She still had the Rosary she had gotten from us earlier, but asked prayers for her friend “Michelle” who lives in the same building and is ill with covid.
A Catholic woman, who moved here from the east coast and now belongs to a local parish, came up and gave a friendly shout, “Yeah, Catholic Church!”
A young adult woman with a small daughter, accepted a Rosary and its pamphlet. She told us she “had Catholics in the family.”
When I showed a 20-something woman the Rosary pamphlet that explains the devotion, our visitor agreed that pictures help her in spiritual contemplation.
A man, accompanied by his wife and young son, accepted a Rosary and its pamphlet. He said he just wanted to give his son “religious options”, presumably letting his boy make up his own mind. Blessed Mother, please lead that child and his family to Your Son, the only true God.
The weather was heavily overcast, but temperatures were relatively warm. We were spared any breeze until “closing time”. Foot traffic was light, but fairly steady. Altogether, the two evangelists gave away 15-20 Rosaries and its pamphlet, as well as a Divine Mercy prayer card.
Praised be Jesus Christ! Please pray for God to send people to this team with hearts prepared to perceive their need for Our Savior Jesus Christ and His Holy Catholic Church, and that much good fruit for His Kingdom comes from their efforts.
