Geeky Catholic Sunday: Pentecost 2019

Gospel Reading: John 20:19-23

Highlight: "As the Father has sent me, so I send you."

Reflection: It is important to remember that Jesus gave us a mission. And that mission is not just, "Believe in Jesus and work on your private relationship with him." We should strive for holiness, of course, but part of being a follower of Christ means trying to be more like him. Jesus sends us as the Father sent him. And the Father didn't send Jesus to Earth to quietly be holy. He sent him to bring God's grace to everyone around him. So we need to step outside our comfort zones and work on the mission Jesus gave us.

Geeky Quote: "I know I'm asking a lot, but the price of freedom is high; it always has been, and it's a price I'm willing to pay. And if I'm the only one, then so be it. But I'm willing to bet I'm not." - Steve Rogers Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Prayer: God, give me the courage to live virtuously, and to bring others into your Church. Amen.
