La vera Gloria di Dio non può essere diffusa da nessuna propaganda e tantomeno da un sistema pubblicitario. L’affermazione della Parola di Dio passa attraverso la testimonianza della nostra vita fervida e gioiosa e della nostra franchezza nell’annunciare la Buona Novella.
From Fr. Gael: There is a very interesting point in this piece of the Gospel where Jesus sends 72 disciples out to work in his name. From the very beginning of Christ’s ministry, it is not about “Lone Rangers.” It is about working in community. Granted that working in pairs is minimal community, but it is community. That should say something to us about how we realize ministry in parish life. It is not about “Lone Rangers,” but rather about community.
There are so many cases in the long history of the Church, where one charismatic personality starts projects which disappear when, in the course of time, the individual disappears. Yet the Church, and the great religious communities in the Church, enjoy a long history in the service of the church. Their charismatic gift and call are entrusted to charismatic persons who form communities around them to carry on the gift and call to service. It is much bigger than any one of us.
And so, within the context of our Church community of Saints Peter and Paul, it is never about “Lone Rangers” but about all of us, the entire community, answering the call and gift of service to all.
–Fr. Gael Sullivan, SDB
