God, Save Us! - 2023-08-06

August 13, 2023

God doesn’t want sinners to die, but to turn from evil and be saved (cf. Ezek 33:11). So thank you again for your prayers for the Boise Catholic street evangelization effort.

”Justin” demonstrated another new behavior. This time, he zoomed by wordlessly but put his hand out for a Rosary, which e. Chuck handed him. Without slowing down, he then went straight to the nearest garbage can and forcefully threw it away. E. Chuck was just tall enough to retrieve it, and so we sanitized it and put it back into service. Lord, please hear our prayers for “Justin” and grant him healing, lasting conversion, and de-escalation of his rage.  “Men’s anger will serve to praise you” (cf. Psalm 76:10-11).

A family stopped for Rosaries. The oldest, a grandparent, seemed less familiar with English, so we offered the Rosary pamphlet in Spanish, which was gratefully accepted.

A broad-shouldered businessman cheerfully proclaimed that he had “lots of Rosaries” at home. May God bless him, hear his prayers, and keep him faithful!

A man in a light-gray suit went by, showing us the large black-beaded Rosary he was wearing around his neck. We found that surprising, since we had each mentally pegged him as a non-Catholic Christian minister. If so, may God bring him all the way home to the Catholic Church. If he’s already Catholic, may God keep him faithful! If he was mocking us, may God save him!

A family from a nearby state stopped and visited with e. Chuck. They ended up each choosing a Rosary.

A woman, “Danielle”, stopped and introduced herself as the marketing director for a non-Catholic Christian organization that travels the world gathering stories from Christians about why they love Jesus. She said she was familiar with the Rosary, but had to hurry off because she was already late for a meeting.

A man with his arm in a sling stopped for a Rosary. He said he’d hurt his elbow in a motorized scooter accident, but has since considered it blessing (and a warning) because, while he was laid up, two other people got killed in similar accidents. May God heal him and grant him wisdom.

Two 20-something women stopped for a Rosary. One said that she’d gotten one from us years ago. We encouraged them to pray it, but something seemed off in their manner. Lord, You can reach them; please save them!

Altogether, the evangelists (Chuck and Lucy, with a cameo appearance by James) gave away 25-30 Rosaries and its pamphlet.

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.

Our mere presence encourages believers, and challenges others. 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!

“Go with the strength you have” (Judg 6:14).
