Selling Salvation

Posted on June 20, 2007. Filed under: Me and only ME ranting, Uncategorized |

I did a guest blog on Maurice Broaddus’ web site entitled “Selling Salvation” it actually is a response to a question that someone had posed to me and having read it Maurice thought well enough of it to post.  It’s basically about the problem with our view of what evangelization is or should be…how to convert people, etc.  It’s a stance that doesn’t go with most main stream views of evangelization, hope you find it interesting.

What emanates from the figure of Saint Joseph is faith…Joseph of Nazareth is a “just man” because he totally “lives by faith.” He is holy because his faith is truly heroic.

Sacred Scripture says little of him. It does not record even one word spoken by Joseph, the carpenter of Nazareth. And yet, even without words, he shows the depth of his faith, his greatness.

Saint Joseph is a man of great spirit. He is great in faith, not because he speaks his own words, but above all because he listens to the words of the Living God. He listens in silence. And his heart ceaselessly perseveres in the readiness to accept the Truth contained in the word of the Living God.

We see how the word of the Living God penetrates deeply into the sould of that man, that just man. And we, do we know how to listen to the word of God? Do we know how to absorb it into the depths of our human personalities? Do we open our conscience in the presend of this word?

Pope John Paul II from Daily Meditations
