Road to Bethlehem Boutique 12/4/21

December 5, 2021

We setup SPSE at our "Road to Bethlehem" Christmas event, where our school's students sang Christmas Carols, and several other tables were setup with Christmas gift ideas. It was our biggest give-away day, as dozens of Miraculous Medals, Rosary's, and prayer cards were distributed. One of our guests was a visiting priest from California, who is a chaplain at a hospital who will put to good use all that he took. There was not much evangelizing going on across different faiths, however our efforts were useful with several conversations with Catholics, discussing and strengthening each other about which conversational skills that will serve to be most effective when speaking with others about the difficult subjects of our day. Pro-Life is very much in the news lately, as we pray the recent conservative justices appointed to the Supreme Court will tip the scales & put our country on track to reverse much of the damage done from Roe v Wade. A common thread from all conversations is that humbleness must be prominent in trying to win the hearts of anyone we speak with, somehow combined with the tragic facts of pro-choice, such as 63 million babies lives have been terminated. St. Joseph, the humblest of all saints, pray for us!!!!
