Saturday, June 11, 2011: (St. Barnabas)
Jesus said: “My people, in St. Paul and St. Barnabas’ day it was difficult to provide food, water, and lodging, but My missionaries had the gifts of laying on hands to support the people. Many also came to believe in Me because of the healings that were performed on the sick and the lame. The spreading of My Church was difficult in these early days because Christians were persecuted and even martyred for their faith. The joy of My love that you experienced this morning is the joy that was in the hearts of these new converts. These early accounts in the Acts of the Apostles are beautiful examples how I still call on My deacons and priests to make converts to the faith. My laity also are called to share their faith with others so all peoples can experience the joy of My love. Give praise and glory to Me for all that I do to encourage My evangelists to save souls.”
