Thought for the Day – 5 January
John Neumann took seriously our Lord’s words, “Go and teach all nations.” From Christ he received his instructions and the power to carry them out. For Christ does not give a mission without supplying the means to accomplish it. The Father’s gift in Christ to John Neumann was his exceptional organizing ability, which he used to spread the Good News. Today the Church is in dire need of men and women to continue in our times the teaching of the Good News. The obstacles and inconveniences are real and costly. Yet when Christians approach Christ, he supplies the necessary talents to answer today’s needs. The Spirit of Christ continues his work through the instrumentality of generous Christians. We might not be as smart, strong, or active as we would like to be. But that doesn’t stop God from loving us and from using us to do wonderful things. When we have to do something difficult, we can ask St. John Neumann’s help.
St John Neumann Pray for us!
