For Freedom, Christ Has Set Us Free
July 5, 2020
Happy Fourth of July 2020! I thank God for the freedom to share our faith on the streets. The first reading for Saturday, July 4, were so encouraging from the prophet Amos as God said "I will bring about the restoration of my people Israel". We, who were alienated from God of Father, have now been brought near through the precious blood of Christ. If Christ has set us free, we are free indeed!
After being locked down for three months. our little chapter is back on the streets and the harvest is ripe! My husband, Bob and I, ventured out on this beautiful 4th of July, and immediately people came up to our table and started asking for rosaries and information. I was hoping to see some people whom we have met over these past four years there so I could tell them I have been praying for them, and were so glad to see them again, but they were all new people at the bus stop.
Please pray for three young adults, Kevin, Noel and Joel (in the picture). Like so many young adults, many of them who do believe in God say that they don't belong to a particular church and have their own private faith. For Noel, as soon as I shared about the Eucharist and the real presence of God, he followed me to our table and wanted to know more. I am so glad we have this beautiful material to give out, particularly the Good News and Eucharist pamphlet. I shared how it is a foretaste of what heaven will be like as we worship the Lamb on the Throne. I gave him a list of churches in the area and phone numbers. Pray that they will follow up on the information given to them and experience the beauty of our Catholic faith.
Please also pray for Kofi, a kind, older man from Ghana whom I prayed with, for God to provide a good job for he and his family and for Omar, a Muslim who was open to hearing about the Trinity as one God in three divine persons and who is Love itself. I was grateful to hear the webinar on witnessing to Muslims as it gave me more of an awareness of where they are coming from.
May God continue to bless our little chapter that it would bear much fruit for God's kingdom. Thank you Faustina and Bernardine for your intercessory prayers!
