Scriptural Reflections

Come after me...

"Come after Me, and I will make you fishers of men."

This sentence from the beginning of the Gospel according to St. Mark reminds us of what we are here for: To "catch" people for Christ.

The Church exists to help people get to heaven.  To do this, the Church must bring them into intimate contact and relationship with Jesus Christ.  Our role is to continually invite--by word and example--our neighbors, friends, co-workers, etc. into the embrace of the Catholic Church.

We are "on a mission."  Do we accept it?
