FROM THE SERVANT GENERAL

ON EVANGELIZATION AND MISSION
(Part 97)

COMMISSIONED TO PREACH THE GOSPEL

Easter Sunday
April 21, 2019
Today’s reading: Acts 10:34-43


The Lord is risen! Happy Easter to all.

Jesus has risen from the dead. He has conquered sin and the dominion of the evil one. He has won salvation for humankind, and “everyone who believes in him will receive forgiveness of sins through his name.” (v.43b). This is the gospel, the good news of salvation in Jesus.

Jesus has done everything needed to be done to save us. But that salvation needs to be proclaimed to all, so that they might hear, believe and put their faith in Jesus. This is why Jesus commissioned his disciples before he finally ascended to heaven. “He commissioned us to preach to the people and testify that he is the one appointed by God as judge of the living and the dead.” (v.42). To preach the gospel is a fundamental task for all Christians.

We are all called to witness to Jesus. “We are witnesses of all that he did both in the country of the Jews and in Jerusalem.” (v.39a). And beyond Israel to the ends of the earth. We witness by the holiness of our lives, and by the verbal preaching of this good news.

Our Catholic Church is missionary. Our community of CFC-FFL is evangelistic and missionary. Our families are missionary. This is our call and charism, to do the work of evangelization and mission. We are families on mission.

To be otherwise is to fail to understand what Easter is all about.
