Evangelizing

Digital continent

"All power in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, until the end of the age."
Matthew 28:18-20

"And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached throughout the world as a witness to all nations, and then the end will come."  Matthew 24: 14

 

"Go into the whole world and proclaim the gospel to every creature." Mark 16:15

 

 "But you will receive power when the holy Spirit comes upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, throughout Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth."   Acts 1:8

 

God beholds the ends of the earth and sees all that is under the heavens.  Job 28:24

 

“We hold a precious treasure that is to be passed on, a treasure that brings light and hope. They are greatly needed. ... The great digital continent not only involves technology but is made up of real men and women who bring with them their hopes, their suffering, their concerns and their pursuit of what is true, beautiful and good. We need to bring Christ to others, through these joys and hopes — like Mary, who brought Christ to the hearts of men and women. … This is the path. This is the challenge.” (Pope Francis)

We are all called to be Spirit-filled disciples,  sent as missionaries to proclaim the Good News of salvation everywhere, unto the ends of the earth. The expression "ends of the earth" includes the so-called 'digital continent'. People are interconnected all around the world in the context of social networks. This digital environment is not purely a virtual world, it is a network not of wires but of people; it involves real men and women, especially the young people  (WCD Message, 2013); they are living there, hundreds of millions. 

 

For us, the challenge and responsibility is to be there, to ensure that the Gospel reaches and touches the hearts of every person. Therefore, we are invited to announce the Gospel to the men and women of today on this “digital continent.” 

 

This Good News with which we have been entrusted, is a person, Jesus Christ.

Pope Francis urges Catholics to keep the doors of the Church open so that people, that Jesus Christ attracts to him, can enter into the mystery. Also, the Spirit-filled disciples must go outside and bring Jesus Christ to others everywhere they are living. 

We contribute to this process of spreading the Gospel through digital and social media in the contemporary language of each and every culture. We need to rediscover the new words and new melodious accents to express the mysteries of our faith.

 

Help us build a great music community.

Shout for joy to God, all virtuous men and women,

praise comes well from upright hearts;

give thanks to God on the lyre,

play to him on the ten-string harp;

sing a new song in his honor,

play with all your skill as you acclaim him!

Psalms 33:3

 

 

Clap your hands, all you peoples, acclaim God with shouts of joy... Psalms 47:1 

Acclaim God, all the earth,
play music to the glory of his name, glorify him with your praises,

say to God, 'What dread you inspire!'  

Psalms 66:2

 

Acclaim God, all the earth, serve God gladly, come into his presence with songs of joy!

Psalms 100:1 

Let them dance in praise of his name,
playing to him on strings and drums! Psalms 149:3 

… a time for mourning and a time for dancing.

Ecclesiastes 3:4 

David… danced before the Lord with all his might. II Samuel 6:14 

King David “offered sacrifice in honor of God; he prayed. Then his prayer became exultant ... it became the prayer of praise and of joy. King David began to dance before the LORD with all his might; he and all the Israelites were bringing up the ark of the LORD with shouts of joy and to the sound of the horn. (second Book of Samuel 6:12-15, 17-17)

Sarah said after she gave birth to Isaac, ‘God has made laughter for me; everyone who hears will laugh over me’.  Sarah, this elderly woman at the age of 90, laughed and danced for joy”. 

Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind and with all your strength.

Mark 12:30

But the hour will come  -- in fact it is here already -- when true worshippers will worship the Father in spirit and truth: that is the kind of worshipper the Father wants. God is spirit, and those who worship must worship in spirit and truth. 
John 4:23-24    

When we ask something of the Lord or even thank the Lord,  we often leave aside the prayer of praise. 

This kind of prayer is not only for those who belong to the charismatic renewal, it is for all Christians.

 

The prayer of praise is a Christian prayer for all of us. 
 
We praise God for his greatness, for he is great. 
We tell him beautiful things, because we like it to be so. 

It does not matter if we are good singers. It is impossible to imagine that “you are able to shout out when your team scores a goal and you cannot sing the Lord’s praises, and leave behind your composure a little to sing”. (Pope Francis)

Spirit Of The Living God Fall Afresh On Me.

Praising God is “totally gratuitous”.

Come, join us to experience and share the joy of the Gospel. 

We do not ask, we do not thank. We praise. You are great! 

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit...

The joy of praise leads us to the joy of celebration. That joy, that the prayer of praise makes us fruitful.

 

Sarah was dancing for joy at 90 years old in the great moment of her fruitfulness!

Fruitfulness gives praise to the Lord.         

To pray is to seek God in his mystery, open the eyes to the invisible, capture the voice of his silence.

To pray is to come into contact with the unfathomable mystery of the pure truth that is obscurely revealed.

To pray is to plunge our minds into the inexhaustible mystery of the sovereign word of God that the gospel pronounces.

To pray is to respond to the love that reminds us at every moment and envelops us in its mystery to transform our lives.

To pray is to let the mystery of the infinity of the presence of God and of the immensity of his heart, invade the full depth of our person.

The Gift of God

"If you knew the gift of God," you would give yourself, too, as your God gives himself to you. 

You would like to prolong this dialogue without end. You would not think of the concern that made you come, but the One who speaks to you.

You would not seek to draw water but to find in me the source of life. You would understand that you cannot exist without me. 

"Without me you can do nothing"

Without me you cannot do anything. If you separate from me, you cut yourself off from the true life of which I remain the sole source. 

Do not give in to illusions, to hope of success; your life can only succeed if it lives in me.

Without me you cannot do nothing.

Do not try independence which, by detaching yourself from me, would obstruct your action. 

If you put your trust not in me but in yourself, you will only be able to reap the fruit of your poverty. 

Without me, you miss the breath, without me, you lack the strength to bring your efforts to the kingdom of grace.

Sing unto the Lord a New Song!

Sing to the Lord a new song!

Sing to the Lord, all the earth!

Sing to the lord, bless his name.

 

Proclaim his salvation day after day, tell of his glory among the nations, tell his marvels to every people.

Some Catholics go far to learn the techniques of prayer, in the East among the Bonzes; they do not know that they have a vein of prayer within themselves.

The Holy Spirit renews all kinds of prayers: liturgical prayer and private prayer, that is to say the prayer of contemplation. The Spirit of holiness, the light of consciences, illuminates our hearts and gives life to everything.


The liturgical prayer is community prayer, but it is not spontaneous.
Personal prayer is spontaneous, but it is not a community prayer.

We need a third kind of prayer that is spontaneous and communal.


There is a new Pentecost in this type of prayer of early Christians (Acts 4). Pope Francis and his predecessors urge all Christians to rediscover this form of prayer that has been the strength of the fledgling Church. This kind of prayer is not only for those who belong to the charismatic renewal, it is for all Christians.

The twenty-four elders who sat on their thrones before God prostrated themselves and worshiped God and said: "We give thanks to you, Lord God almighty, who are and who were. For you have assumed your great power and have established your reign. (Revelation 11: 16-17)

FOR THOSE WHO DO NOT SING

For those whose heart does not sing, Lord, we pray to you, you the source of all joy.

 

For those who cannot sing, they are so overwhelmed and crushed by pain.

 

For those who are obsessed with their difficulties and their trials, to the point of not being able to recognize or sing to the beauty of their lives.

 

For those who do not dare to sing, fearing that their happiness today will disappear before the sadness of tomorrow.

 

For those who have stopped singing, shutting themselves up in the bitterness of their disappointments.

 

For those who sing only of their pain and find no joy worthy of being sung.

 

For those who have never sung since their childhood; a youth marked by misfortune.

 

For those who have not yet sung, but whose hope begins to blossom.

 

For those who interrupted their singing, and who would like to take it back.

 

For those who forget to sing to you while they enjoy the effusion of your happiness.
