There’s an old joke that talks about the angels questioning Jesus about the worldwide evangelization plan after his return to heaven following the Ascension:
Angel: So, Jesus, you’ve just returned to heaven as the victorious Lord of Glory, King of Heaven and Earth, what’s your plan for spreading the news of salvation to the whole world?
Jesus: Well, you see those folks down there on earth -- Peter, James, John, and the rest of my disciples?
Jesus: I told them to tell everyone.
Angel: That’s the plan?
Jesus: That’s it.
As it was then, so it is now. The plan for evangelization still resides with us, under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit.
And all of us who are baptized into the Church, have been baptized into the Church’s mission, which is our mission too. The call to be evangelizers is at once corporate and personal. Some are called to bring the news of salvation to foreign lands. Most are called to bring it to our next-door neighbor -- or, to our next Facebook status.Read it all.
