The risen Jesus said to his unbelieving disciples: “Go into the whole world and proclaim the Gospel to every creature.” Mk_16:9-15
So how do you get a stubborn donkey to start moving? You give him directions! Jesus couldn’t have been more succinct.
Years later, this was one of St. Francis’ favorites. And he took it literally. He preached to the birds and the dogs, to the pigs and the poor, to the wealthy and to the belligerent. Jesus wanted EVERYONE to know about God’s love, and Francis was on fire to tell them. And so should we be, beloved, so should we!
