Memorial of Saint Leo the Great, Pope and Doctor of the Church

Thus I aspire to proclaim the Gospel not where Christ has already been named, so that I do not build on another's foundation, but as it is written: Those who have never been told of him shall see, and those who have never heard of him shall understand.

We should all aspire to proclaim the Gospel to everyone we meet, whether they know the Good News or not. Unlike in Paul’s time most people have at least heard of Jesus, but hearing about him and knowing his teachings are two different things. The best way to spread the Gospel is to live it out through our thoughts, words, and works. By becoming living signs of God’s Goodness, Love, and Truth, we give witness to our faith so even non-believers take notice of. We might not be perfect, but what matters to trying to be the best we can be so others around us see our attempt to be holy and are inspired by it.

In what ways have we proclaimed the Gospel? What have we done to make ourselves into faithful witnesses to the Good News? How can we help others to know, love, and serve God?

O Lord, help us to proclaim the Gospels through our every thought, word, and work.
