A Billboard Pointing to Christ

December 19, 2019

I went out evangelizing in Balboa Park on an unusually cold day in San Diego. I spoke to a few people but didn’t have any dramatic encounters. However, I don’t worry about that. I just try to show up. You never know what effect your presence alone can have, even if I just stand there like a billboard pointing others to Christ.

Speaking of billboards, I think it was a hope to perhaps get a conversation started by wearing this tilma in honor of Our Lady of Guadalupe, whose feast was just the day before. Like I said, no dramatic encounters, but I’m hoping my tilma got some people’s attention and somehow planted some seeds.

Praised be Jesus Christ! Clothing pointing to Our Lord or Our Lady can be a great way to start a conversation on the streets. We can become a walking billboard for Jesus like today’s evangelist.
