Preaching the Good News happens every day in every action
by Sister Agnes Fischer
"And he sent them to preach two by two." ~ Mark 6:7
As he once sent the apostles, he now sends married couples to preach – two by two. From their wedding day, they are sent to preach love. The preface of the wedding Mass says: “In the union of man and woman you have given us a true image of your love.”
- As they celebrate anniversaries, married couples preach fidelity.
- Married couples preach by teaching their children “everything that I have taught you” (Acts 20:35a).
- As they age, they preach by passing on their Christian values and the family history to their grandchildren and by humbly accepting the assistance their children now offer them.
Can we come back to Jesus thrilled about our preaching success?
