The Kerygma Engima from Catholic Answers, July 19, 2013

September 16, 2019

The initial and essential proclamation of the Gospel Message appears 9 times in the New Testament

The men of Nin’eveh will arise at the judgment with this generation and condemn it; for they repented at the preaching of Jonah, and behold, something greater than Jonah is here.     Matthew 12:41

And they went forth and preached everywhere, while the Lord worked with them and confirmed the message by the signs that attended it.  Amen.    Mark 16:20

The men of Nin’eveh will arise at the judgement with this generation at the judgement and condemn it; for they repented at the preaching of Jonah, and behold, something greater than Jonah is here.      Luke 11:32

Now to him who is able to strengthen you according  to my gospel and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery which was kept secret for long ages.      Romans 16:25

For since, in the wisdom of God, the world did not know God through wisdom, it pleased God through the folly of what we preach to save those  who believe.       1 Corinthians 1:21

and my speech and my message were not in plausible words of wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power.      ! Corinthians 2:4

that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures.      1 Corinthians 15:4

But the Lord stood by me and gave me strength to proclaim the word fully, that all the Gentiles might hear it.  So I was rescued from the lion’s mouth.      2 Timothy 4:17

and at the proper time manifested in his word through the preaching with which I have been entrusted by command of God our Savior.       Titus 1:3

Here is one way to do Lectio Divina with Scripture:

1) read & ask when, where, what & why–picking grapes
2) ask how–squeezing grapes
3) pray–making the wine
4) savor–enjoy the wine
5) action plan

St. John Vianney (1786-1859) is the patron saint of priests.  He worked tirelessly for over 40 years and helped radically transform his small village and surroundings.  He became known internationally, and his funeral was attended by 300 priests and 6,000 people.  More on his remarkable life: 

Some famous quotes:
“The soul should move toward prayer the way a fish should move toward water; they are both a purely natural state.”
“Private prayer is like straw scattered here and there; if you set it on fire it makes a lot of little flames.  But gather these straws into a bundle and light them, and you get a mighty fire, rising like a column into the sky; public prayer is like that.”
“My children, it is in loving the cross that we find true peace, not running from it.”
“There is no better way to experience the good God than to find him in the perfect sacrifice of the Mass.”
“This is the glorious duty of man:  to pray and to love.  If you pray and love, that is where a man’s happiness lies.”
S. John Vianney, pray for our priests, our bishops, and for us.
