Do you maximize the opportunities that the Holy Spirit presents to you in telling fellow pilgrims about the Resurrected Christ? - Daily Bible Reflections April 23,2015

SHARING GOD’S
WORD TO THE WORLD
 
“How can I unless someone instructs me?” – Acts 8:31
 
       I really am blessed to be an ambassador for God and country here in the United Arab Emirates. There is an estimated 600,000 Overseas Filipino Workers and their families here. There are also more than 200 nationalities living and working in this very multi-cultural and open society that allows freedom of worship. Recently, the enlightened leadership donated two tracts of land to build two more Catholic churches in the capital of Abu Dhabi. Likewise, the Dubai emirate has allowed the Vicariate of St. Mary to establish a school run by our very own Sisters of St. Paul of Chartres. In this setting, one can share the Word to the whole world without active preaching — through lives lived as Christians.
       Coincidentally, when I wrote this article almost a year ago, the Gospel reading was John 21:1-14. It’s about the Apostles catching 153 large fish, believed to be the total number of species in the earth’s seas (representing humanity). Like them, who were commanded to be fishers of all men, we Christians are given the same mission.
       I try to share God’s Word — Jesus — to whoever is receptive in the global human sea that is present here. Grace Princesa
 
Reflection: Do you maximize the opportunities that the Holy Spirit presents to you in telling fellow pilgrims about the Resurrected Christ?
 
Lord, as St. Francis prayed, may I preach about You, and talk if I must.
 
St. George, martyr, patron of England, pray for us.
