The Church is calling each of us to take personal responsibility for the mission of the Lord and to "give them some food ourselves."
Jesus gives us a list of reasons why someone might reject something as perfectly effective as the Gospel.
Preach the infinite love of God, welcome people where they are at, and be a community that calls each other to greater holiness.
Jesus sent the seventy-two disciples to preach his coming into the world.
The Holy Spirit is the same today as it was at Pentecost, which means our preaching can be just as powerful.
Our religion, our binding to God, does not make sense unless we begin with the idea that God rejoices over us.
By having his mother appear to St. Juan Diego, God showed how much he loved the indigenous people of the Americas. Even today, the Mexican people have a special mission to evangelize the Western Hemisphere.
Even when the Church appears guilty of grave sins, the mission is still valid because Jesus still saves.
Our divisions prevent us from preaching the Gospel.
The mission of our parish is to preach the Gospel. We must avoid the mistakes of the Jews of Jesus' time, who focused on maintenance rather than mission.
