Dynamic Catholic, Alive!
The message we hear from the Gospel reading today is one that we must hear again and again: repent and believe the good news. This is the constant task of the faithful Christian, to seek to grow in virtue and root out sinfulness. The authentic witness of a disciple who has truly repented of his sins can work wonders in the cause of evangelization. We love conversion stories of the saints and people we know in our own lives today. One who has repented and has chosen to live for Christ alone provides an extraordinary example for us who want to be better evangelists.
