Live the Gospel
Live the unconditional love and joy of the Gospel.
How we live the Gospel
Our faith is always personal, but it should never be merely private.
The love and joy we experience in our relationship with Jesus should radiate out to all those we meet.
We should always be prepared to give witness to our faith, both by sharing the story of how Jesus has changed our lives and in acts of loving service to others.
“Always be ready to give an explanation to anyone who asks you for a reason for your hope.”
1 Peter 3:15
Start with Reflection
Take an inventory of your faith. Spend a few minutes to ask yourself these questions.
Who gives witness to the Christian life in ways that I admire?
How do I publicly witness the Christian life with other Catholics? In the broader community?
In what situations and with what people is this most challenging for me?
Are these challenges calling me to a deepening conversion and trust of Jesus? How?
