For a commentary on the readings for today click here: http://www.salvationhistory.com/homily_helps
Our Parish Priest’s homily focussed on the importance of sharing The Good News. As Christians and followers of Christ we are called to share God’s plan for Salvation through our lives, words and actions. He then went on to use the example of St. Vincent de Paul‘s life to demonstrate how an ordinary Catholic made huge changes in the society in which he lived. Indeed, it’s an inspirational story!

Naturally, I thought about what I need to do in order to improve my attempts on sharing the The Good News, and how much I still have to learn along the way. As usual, I am still contemplating the readings and mulling over Father’s words of wisdom.
What a beautiful, meditative mass. Thank you Father!
I looked up the logo for the SVP Society in England and Wales. The message is clear.
