2020-04-19 - Work-from-home “street evangelization” continues
April 26, 2020
Work-from-home “street evangelization” continues. So thank you again for your prayers for the Boise Catholic street evangelization effort. God sees. No prayer is wasted.
The local governments’ stay-at-home orders are due to expire next week. This week, we still deem it imprudent to display our Rosaries and literature. This week, we still deem it a bad example (that is, behavior that could encourage others to ignore the safety precautions altogether) to resume our inviting of public contact. Please continue to pray for us for the wisdom to discern God’s will and timing for this apostolate?
My concern for my fellow Catholics continues to grow. My parish offered very limited hours for the reception of one Sacrament, Reconciliation. And people stayed away in droves! Not good. My fear is that Mass attendance, once it is offered again, will suffer from the same lack of perception of its infinite value. Please continue to pray that spiritual health is restored for the Catholic Church, for individual Catholics, and for those they love?
In his recent “Letter on the Month of May” (https://www.vaticannews.va/en/pope/news/2020-04/letter-on-the-month-of-may-full-text.html <https://www.vaticannews.va/en/pope/news/2020-04/letter-on-the-month-of-may-full-text.html> ), our Holy Father urges everyone to pray the Rosary daily during May. He also asks us to add some prayers at the end, related to the suffering and other needs caused by the pandemic.
Today, we plan to pray all 20 decades of the Rosary again at our typical session time, but separately from within our own homes. Join us? And please again pray that people will perceive their need for Jesus Christ and His Holy Catholic Church, and that much good fruit for His Kingdom comes of today’s efforts.
The need our Savior is as great as always! 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!
“The Lord also restored the prosperity of Job, after he had prayed for his friends; the Lord even gave to Job twice as much as he had before” (Job 42:10) May He also restore His Church!
