His Door is Always Open

Our team has been evangelizing at two different places: St. Leo"s Soup Kitchen in Detroit and SVDP in Utica.  Last week we were at SVDP, outdoors on a beautiful Saturday morning.  A new evangelizer, Michelle,  joined us.  She is on our Evangelization Commission at our church. She was skeptical, at first, about evangelizing with SPSE.  I am happy to report that at the end of our session she said that she was happy she came and would like to do this again:-).We had a good number of people stop by that took rosaries, medals, etc. and several that accepted prayer.  One gal in particular looked somewhat distressed as she walked up to the table.  We asked if she would like a rosary, etc. She replied she wasn't Catholic and wasn't even sure that she was a Christian.  We relied to her that our Lord's door is always open.  She lingered and we asked if she would like to pray about something.  After a while she said she would like a prayer for her mom.  We sat down and talked a while about the situation with her mom and then we prayed. We offered her a rosary and an explanation sheet on how to say the rosary.  She thanked us and  also took a Miraculous medal.  I reminded her to "Knock on His door" and that He was waiting for her. For the first time, she had a smile on her face.  Praise be to Jesus Christ!!SPSE Team PhotoSPSE Team Photo
