FISHERS FOR CHRIST
Dear Parishioners, Friends and Guests,
Six million people went to see Pope Francis in Manila, Philippines. I am trying to imagine that many people in Philly this coming September when the Pope makes his trip here!
Pope Francis draws a big crowd. We shouldn’t lose his message in the midst of the extravaganza. His message is: Follow Christ!
When we follow Christ, our lives are forever changed — just like the very first disciples. And, just like them, just like Pope Francis, it is the job of every baptized Christian to proclaim that message: Follow Christ! We are all fishers for Christ!
How different would it make my day — your day — if we lived it as a Fisher for Christ, as an Ambassador for Christ? What would change?
