Just a couple of thoughts, while I am between Masses this Sunday. Every practicing Catholic is called to be an evangelizer. Called to proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ, by word and action. Called to invite those who have fallen away from the Church, by loving them.
Deacons are well positioned for this, because we live our vocation to serve, to proclaim the Good News, not just in Church; but also in our homes, offices, the marketplace, and on the streets. A nun, Mother Olga, said that when we wake up for the day, we are deacons, open to serving others, at every moment. Open to speaking the Good News, by word and action, to everyone we come in contact with. And thus, we can become examples to others on what it truly means to be Evangelizers.
