The “Little Way”
Anita Skaria, in this article, guides both young and old alike reminding us to evangelize by doing little things with love
Soon after He was resurrected, Jesus commissioned His disciples on a mission to go around the world preaching the Gospel. Each of them left to different places: St. Peter to Italy, St. Andrew to Greece, and St. Thomas to India. Without them, many people in the world wouldn’t have ever entered into the Catholic faith. In fact, if St. Thomas didn’t preach the Gospel in India, most of us probably wouldn’t have become Christians!
Now, this mission of evangelization that Jesus’ apostles inherited is passed on to the present church. Right when we’re baptized into the Catholic faith, we are bestowed with the mission to evangelize.
So it’s up to us to spread the message of Jesus’ death and resurrection, and his promise of life in heaven. Each and every one of us is called to participate in an act of evangelization in some way, big or small. You may not be old enough to travel to the different parts of the world, and that’s totally fine. The good news is, you don’t have to be an adult or a missionary to tell others about Jesus!
