Welcome to our Taste and See Mass on Palm Sunday, 13th April at 3.30pm. Holy Mass will be at 3.30pm followed at 4.30pm by input and discussion for adults and there will be a children’s programme. At 5.30pm we will share a meal with one another and conclude our programme for 6.30pm. On entering Jerusalem Jesus won over the crowds at least fleetingly. They were not to remain steadfast for long in the face of opposition and criticism. His journey to Golgotha was to become a convincing argument of God’s love for each one of us and in the triumph of Easter he invited each of us to go out and win the World for Christ.
In the series Schoenstatt Hearts Afire Fr. Duncan is showing ways of how we can become apostles. The branches of the tree of evangelisation show three ways to evangelise. In the foliage of our tree of evangelisation, we can discover the various branches – mainly three large “branches”. These branches symbolise the different and the various styles of apostolate that we can be called to do. All three are important, and all three have their place and significance.
- Evangelisation through Example
- Evangelisation through Words
- Evangelisation through Action
☞ Three “Types” of Christians
There are different types of Christians today. There are Christians who don’t want to get involved in shaping history. This means, that they look at the world and they look at the progress of history, but they don’t want to get involved – God will sort everything out. They stand aside and watch it all happen.
There are also Christians who are so-called “activists”. They want to get involved in shaping history, but they don’t want to do it with God, and they forget to include God in what they do. They think that everything depends of them.
And then that is a third type of Christian – the Christian that is so urgently needed today – that is the Christian who really wants to cooperate with God, and has the courage to make history with God – the Divine and the human are linked together. We want to join type three in our family! The growth of faith and development of life of our children depends on this unity of God and humanity. We want to win the family and our world for Christ. Welcome to our Taste and See Mass on Palm Sunday, 13th April at 3.30pm. We look forward to seeing you here!
