“You shall be my witness to Jerusalem, and to all of Judea and Samaria and to the ends of the earth.” (Acts 1:8)
In this enlightening and uplifting sharing of the Word of God, “WE ARE CALLED TO BE MISSIONARIES” by Rev. Fr. Augustine Vallooran V.C., Director of Divine Retreat Centre Muringoor, Kerala, India, we are clearly reminded “that Jesus last command and new command to the Disciples AND to each of us – a new meaning for our life and a new purpose for our living.”
“What are we living For What is the reason for our existence You and I , we live for Jesus! We live to bring the Good News of Salvation everywhere around us.”
“Wherever we are, whatever we must be doing, whoever we are talking to, we should have a mission. By nature, by call, by commission, we are missionaries! A missionary is a person with a mission. You and I, we are people with a mission.”
“We need to have confidence t o be missionaries ”“ to be lights to the ends of the earth ”“ WITNESSES! Jesus said, ”˜You shall be my witnesses”¦”™ Who is a witness? A witness is a person who has experienced first-hand.”
“Jesus is giving us an offer today ”“ to be One with Jesus; to be united with Jesus; to be in the Presence of the Lord in the Power of the Holy Spirit.”
“How do we live with Jesus? We live one with Jesus in Prayer. In Prayer, we feel His Presence wherever we are. We feel God is close to us.”
“Everything we do should be an act of love for my Jesus, my Friend. The Friend who died for me and who lives with me”¦who never leaves me alone! It is with Him I live. That experience of Oneness with God, the total commitment to Him ”“ every decision I make, I make in the Light if His Word. Everything I do, I do in the Power of the Holy Spirit.”
