La Horquetta parish priest Fr Dwight Merrick reflects on the meaning of missionary discipleship. October was declared by Pope Francis the Church’s Extraordinary Missionary Month.
Thirty years ago, I took a pamphlet from a Jehovah’s Witness trying not to offend them. I tried to read it at home and was immediately stopped. A voice in my head asked me how I could make time for this pamphlet when I had not made time for the books I bought with my own money and wanted to read?
That was the last time I took such a pamphlet. Life today is simple—not easy but simple. If it is not going to help me become like Jesus, it is not worthy of my time or effort.
