We can be the Lord’s present-day apostles whenever others see His image and likeness in us through our actions - Daily Bible Reflections July 9,2014


MODERN-DAY
AMBASSADORS
 
“As you go, make this proclamation: ‘The kingdom of God is at hand.’” – Matthew 10:7
 
       OFWs (Overseas Filipino Workers) pursue the promise of a better life in foreign lands. They endure the loneliness of being away from their families and cope with living in a totally new environment. Their remittances help keep the Philippine economy afloat and they are hailed as the new heroes of the country.
       OFWs bring their skills and their faith wherever they go. In Europe, they fill the otherwise empty churches. We hear stories of conversion of their spouses when they get married to foreign nationals and eventually raise Catholic children. Children who tag along with their Filipino nannies to church also influence their parents.
       “In every corner of the world, there is a Filipino and there is Christmas,” heralds a local network’s season ID. Our traditional Simbang Gabi has started to gain ground in some US parishes. Non-Filipino churchgoers claim to have a better appreciation of the Christmas season because of the nine-day novena. OFWs are the new ambassadors of the Church spreading the message of God.

Reflection: We can be the Lord’s present-day apostles whenever others see His image and likeness in us through our actions.
 
Dear Lord, guide my thoughts, my words, and my deeds so that I can proclaim Your kingdom in my own little way.
 
St. Augustine Zhao Rong and Companions, pray for us.
