New Evangelization Novena: We have been saved

Novena Day 2: We have been saved

We have been saved

One important thing to remember when we evangelize is that we are truly sharing good news. Evangelization is not about persuading someone for our own selfish reasons. Our goal while evangelizing is never simply to convince someone that we are right. Rather, we evangelize because we are so filled with the Good News that we want all people to share in that joy. We want them to know that, through Jesus, we have been saved.

Opening Prayer

Lord God, we ask you to pour out your blessings on your Church as we answer your call to the New Evangelization. Grant us the grace to proclaim the Gospel to those who have not yet heard it and to those who have strayed from you, especially through the use of television in CatholicTV’s mission. Help us to see new ways to use the tools of our time to spread your Word to all people. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Scripture

“For this is what the Lord has commanded us:
‘I have made you a light for the Gentiles,
that you may bring salvation to the ends of the earth.’” – Acts 13:47

Prayer

Lord Jesus, you came to save all sinners by your Passion, death, and Resurrection. Help us to spread the Good News of salvation to all people so that they may come to know you and say yes to you. Amen.
