Religious Freedom Week: June 30 – Evangelizing in the Public Square


God the Father, send forth your Holy Spirit and fill us with the same zeal and love for Christ that animated your servant, St. Paul. Stir in our hearts a desire to bring your love, through word and deed, into every aspect of our lives: into our families, our work, our leisure, and our citizenship. Give us your strength, so that we might never tire of running the race and might “run so as to win.” Guide our speech and actions, so that, like St. Paul, we might be “all things to all men,” and win others to Christ, not for our glory but for Yours.

Through Our Lord, Jesus Christ. Amen.

Reflection: The Conversion of St. Paul

Act: Reach out to your neighbors, and invite them to share in a meal or other activity with you. Use this as an opportunity to evangelize through the example of your daily life.
