DEAR FATHER | The Good News of Jesus leads to freedom of life with God

When we hear the word "gospel", our minds immediately turn to the four books at the head of the New Testament. Originally, though, this word had a more expansive meaning.

BEFORE THE CROSS | Every situation can be used to spread the Good News

A priest I know from Florida was recently returning from a foreign country. When he went through customs they asked him if he had anything to declare. With a twinkle in his eyes and a smile on his face, he responded: "Yes. Jesus Christ is Lord!"

It wasn't the response they were expecting; still, his declaration elicited several "Amens" from the customs agents.

This simple (and true!) story highlights one of the main themes from the readings this week. Every situation is an opportunity to proclaim the Good News.
