“Proclaim the gospel always; use words when necessary.” This quote attributed to St. Francis is a powerful statement on how the Good News that Christ is King gets spread. Pray that God will show you one way to proclaim the gospel through actions rather than words today. It could be as simple as picking up trash along the street, taking the time to talk to a lonely person, or secretly giving a struggling couple money for a meal together.
