Accept the Challenge – Evangelize
By Bishop G. Giaquinta
much is being said about evangelization. I think
this is an inspiration from the Lord. We too must be
evangelizers of the NEW MILLENIUM but must do it
according to our perspective. We must not set aside
our motto: to evangelize holiness. We must
evangelize holiness even in the NEW MILLENIUM. This
means to evangelize the message of Christ, the
source of holiness. To evangelize through Christ's
methodology, for He is the Holy One of God, by
following in his footsteps, as St. Peter reminds us.
One of Christ's
characteristics is that He did not count the cost,
but rather, He risked; by risking, He lost and won
at the same time! He did not make calculations about
his time, energy or anything else. He just gave
himself. If He were to calculate the risk involved,
He would not have spoken as He did to the scribes
and the Pharisees: he had the courage of the truth.
Christ not only did not calculate but also risked
royally! And He lost: they crucified Him! Yet,
through his death, Christ won! He is a winner who
loses and a loser who wins!
We, too, have to
let go of our calculations and risk more. But we
will be winners only in the strength of the Lord,
and through our trust in Mary. We will be winners
only if we have the courage to risk.
