Still Plenty to Be Reached - 2022-09-18

September 25, 2022

Sorry for the shortness of this report, but I ended up recalling only a few details about last week’s session. But be assured that we’re still out there every week inviting people to grow closer to Jesus Christ through the Rosary. So thank you again for your prayers for the Boise Catholic street evangelization effort.

Several young adults, approaching separately throughout the session, each wanted a Rosary but said they weren't Christian. Besides accepting a Rosary, they each then accepted a copy of the kerygma and the encouragement to read it and to try praying the Rosary, even if all they had were questions. Lord, have mercy and bring them all home to You!

A non-Catholic Christian man stopped, curious about the Rosary. E. Lucy explained the devotion and that even non-Catholics found it “helped their walk with Christ”. He first accepted the how-to pamphlet, and then chose a Rosary for himself. Lord, grant him the grace to trust Your Blessed Mother’s prayers for him!

E. Todd stopped by with his wife. He reported that another member of his men's group might be interested in this apostolate. He showed his hefty silver St. Michael Rosary that had gotten damaged on a foreign trip, but had now been repaired.

“John”, the retired parking lot attendant, showed up on foot and sporting bright purple hair and beard (not allowed when he employed). A passerby complimented him. His coworker, who got a Rosary from us a few weeks ago, hurried by twice, very busy now that John has retired. John had told his wife that he was going to go “visit his Catholic friends". Please continue to pray for John’s conversion.

“Uwe” walked quickly by again, only speaking pleasantries about the weather. Please pray for his continuing growth in Faith and his discovery of Jesus Christ.

Altogether, the lone evangelist gave away 12-15 Rosaries and its pamphlet, as well as 3-4 Good News/kerygma pamphlets.

Please pray for us again today? Ask God to send people to us 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 of today’s efforts.

Spiritual progress is sometimes slow to appear, but our efforts continue. 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!
