In today’s reading from Acts, Philip is sent by the Spirit to connect with an Ethiopian eunuch, a high court official. Philip shares scripture, proclaims Jesus, and finally baptizes the stranger.

In our Catholic liturgy, we are privileged to be fed by both Word and Eucharist so that we might go forth and spread the good news. I find that worship is much richer if scripture is a vital part of my prayer routine. My spirituality is even deeper when I can reflect on the Word (contemplation), study it, and share it with others (action).

Do you make scripture a part of your daily diet?

Are you bold like Philip or do you restrict with whom you share scripture and your faith?

How do the scriptures call you to action?
