When you look at those who don’t follow Jesus or engage with Catholics who don’t take their Faith seriously, what do you see?
Do you see an enemy? A problem to be dealt with? An annoyance to be ignored or side-stepped? Or do you see someone who is secretly miserable, unfulfilled, and starving for something more?
Every single one of us is built with a deep, relentless longing in our hearts. Only, so many people don’t even know what it is that they long for. It’s like a starving person who doesn’t realize that what they need is food!
All they need is Jesus Christ and His Truth—a personal living relationship with God. But so often there is no one willing or able to introduce them to Him! “The harvest is abundant but the laborers are few” (Lk. 10:2).
Our society is starving without Jesus and so many Catholics walk away hungry—the world and our Church is groaning with hunger pains.
But we have been given the Bread of Life. We know Him and know that it is Jesus they are hungry for. To know this is an incredible privilege and an immense responsibility. Will you feed the poor and bring Him to them? Will you introduce them to Jesus?
