04-28-15 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

April 28, 2015
(St. Peter Chanel, Priest and Martyr)
Barnabas went to Tarsus to look for Saul, and when he had found him he brought him to Antioch.  For a whole year they met with the Church and taught a large number of people, and it was in Antioch that the disciples were first called Christians.  Acts 11:19-26

Peter and the Apostles sent Saul/Paul back home to Tarsus, possibly because he was a little too strong in his evangelization and was threatened with death in Jerusalem.  So when the Apostles found Antioch to be ripe for change and accepting of the Gospel, they sent for Paul to come and help evangelize the people there. They met with such great success, that they earned the name “Christian” and we might say, “Christianity” was born.  If somebody unfamiliar with Christianity were to meet us, beloved, would they discover Christ through us, enough to call us Christian?  All we need do is let them know how very much they are loved by this man we called Jesus (our Lord) and by us, that they are never alone, and that eternal peace can be theirs as well!
