Ego elegi vos | I chose you

You didn’t choose me. I chose you. I appointed you to go and produce lasting fruit, so that the Father will give you whatever you ask for, using my name—John 15:16 (NLT)

From the first reading it is seen how the light of Jesus Christ penetrates the life of another disciple, creating one of the greatest Missionaries of all times.  In John, Jesus bides his disciples to go out to the whole world to share the Good News.  

He fills them with powers that proclaim that something great is happening!  This is not just ordinary daily stuff.  Do you realize what power is yours as you live and proclaim the Good News authentically?  Maybe it isn't readily seen at the time you evangelize, but it is a seed sown that the Lord of the Harvest continues to nurture.  

Good done, no matter how small, will be fruitful in the lives of those who are sincere and open to receive.  

Whether the message is proclaimed within a family or a small circle of friends, or in a foreign country, it has its impact with our proclamation, our life and then our words!
