Feast of Saint Matthew, Apostle and Evangelist (September 21)
Handout or Bulletin Insert.
Description: Do you ever wonder why God “allows” evil to continue? It’s not his fault. Jesus won the battle against evil 2000 years ago. Today we bring that same victory into the world by “living a life worthy of our calling.” We are not called to wait for the Second Coming of Christ, relying on a future Jesus to drive out evil. Jesus is here now: in us. We are the earthly body of Christ, and we have a message that drives out evil! It’s a message of love that has the power to change the world, and it happens whenever Jesus ministers to others through us, speaks to others through us, and enables us to be like him so that we actually live the message.
