We all need a Savior! - 2020-02-23
March 1, 2020
We all need a Savior! So thank you again for your prayers for Boise’s Catholic street evangelization effort. Two evangelists were available.
“Manny”, our visitor from a couple of months ago, encountered evangelist Chuck at his parish. After exchanging a “You look familiar. Do I know you?” look with each other, Chuck suddenly remembered his name and story: Manny had grown up with practitioners of the occult and was deeply embedded in that philosophy. He now wanted out, he’d told us. But, Chuck said, he was still trying to use witchcraft to break free of witchcraft. Please continue to pray for Manny, that he recognize that only Our Savior, Jesus Christ, can set him free!
A Catholic man and woman stopped. He attends Mass at a nearby parish, and already has Rosaries. When evangelist Lucy asked him to “pray it once for us”, he countered with, “Yes. And I’ll pray the Chaplet of Divine Mercy.” The woman smiled and nodded. I glanced at the clock, 15 minutes until the Hour of Mercy.
“Ol’ Walt” stopped and talked for a full half-hour with evangelist Chuck, repeating the same stories more than once. A judge had released Walt’s assailant, and Walt was very angry. Evangelist Chuck told him that we’re praying or him. Please continue to ask especially that Walt be granted the ability to forgive?
A down-and-out family stopped. The mom lives at a nearby battered women’s shelter. She and the two young girls with her each accepted a Rosary. The mom also accepted the Rosary pamphlet. The man with them, pushing the stroller, said nothing.
Two women stopped. Claiming to be already familiar with the Rosary, they each chose one. One woman then looked with interest at our pamphlets. She accepted copies of “Praying to Saints”, “What about Mary?”, and "Marian Doctrines”.
The two evangelists gave away 15-20 Rosaries and accompanying pamphlet, 1 each of the FAQ pamphlets: “Praying to the Saints”, “What About Mary?”, and “Marian Doctrines”, and a copy each of a “Jesus Knocking” bookmark and a “Divine Mercy” bookmark.
Please pray for us again today, asking God to prepare people’s hearts to perceive their need for Jesus Christ and His Holy Catholic Church, and that much good fruit for His Kingdom comes of today’s efforts.
“Oh, happy fault!” that we were given so great a Savior! And thank you again for your prayers and other support for this apostolate of that Good News! In turn, may God protect and greatly bless you and those you love!
