Missionaries of the Gospel

“As Christians, we are called to be missionaries of the Gospel. When we receive good news, or when we experience beautiful moments, we naturally seek to share them with others. We feel inside that we cannot hold back the joy that we have been given, and we want to spread it. The joy that stirs within is such that it drives us to share it.” — Pope Francis

Reflection: Do you think of yourself as a “missionary of the Gospel”? What good news or experiences of beauty did you share with others recently? What would have kept you from sharing this joy with a particular person? Do these same factors make you hesitate in acknowledging God as a source of this joy?
