Evangelizing at St. Theresa's Christmas Fair 2019

December 11, 2019

Last weekend at  St Theresa's we set up to evangelize at the Christmas Craft Fair. Not a lot of traffic but we got to talk with several people both young and old. Fr. Marcel had given us some rosaries he found around the Church so we had these on the table along with pamphlets and miraculous medals. One white set of rosaries was particularly beautiful. I'm not sure what they were made out of but it appeared to be either ivory, stone or bone. On each bead was engraved a different Marian title. A true heirloom. I remember looking at the beads and thinking these need to go to someone special. When someone who we only superficially  engage with picked up the rosaries from among all we had I was a little disappointed. Thinking about it I began to realize who am I to decide who is special and who is not. Do any of us really deserve the gift of Faith freely given. Are we not all special and at the same time all non deserving. This is a ministry of Faith and trust that  when we do our part Jesus will do the rest. I thought this was a good example of the evangelizers being evangelized.
This wraps up our first year of the St. Paul Street Evangelization ministry. Thanks to all those who have prayed for us and supported our efforts. May the peace and joy of Christmas find a welcome in our hearts, our families and our community.
