It is through our ordinary lives that the Church carries out her mission to proclaim and to manifest God's kingdom of grace, love, truth, justice and peace.
We are always on the witness stand. Our lives tell others about the life of Jesus. We live and talk in such a manner that the truth of what we proclaim inspires them to accept and follow the Lord. We tell the story of Jesus with such conviction and with such power that others want what we have. Faith begins with this witness. The kingdom of God comes to be as the Word is proclaimed, embraced, and lived.
