That all the Gentiles might hear it
Today, on the Solemnity of the Holy Apostles Peter and Paul, we celebrate two men who literally gave everything they had in order to proclaim the infinitely more valuable message of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
In today’s second reading (2 Timothy 4:6-8, 17-18), Saint Paul himself says:
The Lord stood by me and gave me strength,
so that through me the proclamation might be completed
and all the Gentiles might hear it.
May the Lord give us strength and courage so that the proclamation of the Gospel may be continued in our own lives.
