A mission that surpasses us
 
How to announce the Good Master when one discovers his weakness and has to ask for forgiveness daily for his sins?
 
When we think of the wonderful mission of bringing the Gospel to all people, there is a feeling of some surprise, perhaps even fear. Isn’t something greatly surpasses us?
 
Just look at some environments of our time to feel that the apostolic mission surpasses us. Sometimes we feel small in front of those who control the culture, the images, the "informative" media, the social networks, the ideas that children, young people, and adults receive.
 
However, the voice of Christ continues in our hearts. He tells us not to fear, that he is with us until the end of time, to announce and baptize in His Name.
 
However... what to do when the doors remain closed when a certain hostility rejects the messenger? Above all, how to announce the Good Master when one discovers his weakness and has to ask for forgiveness daily for his sins?
 
Despite these and other obstacles, the Gospel is such a wonderful treasure that it is worth launching the networks again and again in the hope that God will do the rest (the only important thing): touch the hearts so that they can discover a message of mercy
 
That is the mission of the Church since its inception: to announce the gift of Redemption in Christ, to reveal the great mystery, "hidden from centuries and generations, and now manifested to its saints, to whom God wanted to make known what is the wealth of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles, which is Christ among you, the hope of glory "(Col 1:26 27).
 
From the trust in Christ, with the certainty of the beauty and joy of the Gospel (cf. "Redemptoris missio" of John Paul II and "Evangelii gaudium" of Pope Francis), each baptized person can become a witness, especially with his life, and with his words.
 
We can no longer be paralyzed by the fear of failure or pusillanimity when we see our smallness. The unstoppable light of Christ's message has to shine high in the mountains, inside skyscrapers, in the humblest shacks, in the heart of the most abandoned.
 
It is a mission that surpasses us, but we carry forward full of hope and love to those who need to receive the Gospel. That is a mission we assume with joy because we have our eyes set on Christ, who began in us the good work, and that will bring it to its fullness (Flp 1, 6).
