“For this reason, I remind you to stir into flame the gift of God that you have through the imposition of my hands.” 2 Timothy: 6
“Proclaim God’s marvelous deeds to all the nations.” Psalm 96
“He said to them, “The harvest is abundant but the laborers are few; so ask the master of the harvest to send out laborers for his harvest.” Luke 10: 2
There’s a common theme in the three readings for today, the Feast of Saint Timoth and Saint Titus. It’s summed up in the responsorial Psalm, “Proclaim God’s marvelous deeds to all the nations.” After all, that’s what we’re all called to do, isn’t it?
Whether it’s through our works, or through our words, proclaiming God’s works is our highest calling. Our goal in life isn’t to be the only person in heaven. Our goal is to take as many people with us as we possibly can.
Whether you’re the descendant of Peter, the Vicar of Christ, whether you run a little dog-and-pony show blog, or if you’re primary ministry is as spouse and parent, proclaiming the good news of Christ is why we’re all here.
