This report is a continuation from yesterday’s story and comes to us from team leader Lucy with our team in Boise, ID:

A heavy-set young-adult man was passing by, as far away from us as the walkway allowed. He declined our offer of a Rosary. Then he paused, swallowed hard, arranged his face into a smile, and said, “I respect you and what you are doing, but I do not respect what the Catholic Church is doing. So, no thank you. Have a nice day.” As he walked on, we saw that his backpack sported a gender dysphoria flag, and wondered if his objection was more personal than theological. May God grant him the grace to hear and heed the Holy Spirit’s call to embrace the Savior of the world in faith and trust, and to be healed.

Another man said, as he passed by, that he had plenty of Rosaries. He had a quiet place at home where he spent much time in prayer because he lived with a lot of pain. Please pray for this man’s healing and for all who live with chronic illness.

As we had headed downtown to begin the session, it suddenly started snowing and quickly accumulated about an inch. But, it stopped as we arrived at the business park. By the time our session was over, the sun had been out and the pavement was dry. Foot traffic remained fairly sparse, but the two evangelists still gave away 15-20 Rosaries and its pamphlet.

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.

God is willing to forgive those who ask Him, but the difficult thing is to convince them to stop running away from Him. So, thank you again for your prayers and other support for this apostolate. In turn, may God protect and greatly bless you and all those you love!
