That through the intercession of Mary, Christians living in secularized communities may become available to proclaim Jesus. “

Reflection on Social Issues: The western world has known a long period of Christian society. Since the cultural revolution of the 1960’s, the faith no longer holds pride of place in western society. It is sometimes difficult for us to present ourselves as believers and announce the important place Jesus Christ has in our lives. How can we learn to live as Christians in Quebec society today? How are we prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks [us] for a reason for the hope that is in [us]? (1 P 3, 15)


Our Faith Response : In the first centuries, the Church lived her life marginalized within society. For the first generation of believers as for us today, the Faith is a source of comfort. The Gospel of Luke invites us to “read the signs of the times” which exhorts us to love and to understand the world we are a part of. Jesus watches over the faithful, protecting and strengthening us daily. In His priestly prayer in John’s Gospel, Jesus sends us out into the world (Jn. 17:18) as sheep among wolves. His intent is for us to be His witnesses. Like Mary, Star of the Gospel, how can I live within this secularized society and witness to my faith with confidence?


Questions we need to ask ourselves

 In imitation of Mary and the Apostles, my Baptism engages me to witness to my faith to every person who needs to hear of the love of God.
