Take Christ to your neighbors

September 13, 2021

There are empty vessels all around us. They can be filled with the love of Christ. Are there any empty vessels in your home? Among your neighbors? If you are a lawyer, do you know empty vessels in your profession? There's a doctor; there's a nurse; are there not many whose lives  are destitute? I recently heard of a lawyer who died in Berlin. He was a nonbeliever. He had a Catholic law partner, and when his friend became ill the Catholic lawyer visited him and said, 'Now that you are about to die, do you not think it's time to make your peace with God?' The dying partner said to him, 'If Christ and your Church has meant so little to you during your life that you never once spoke to me about it, how can it mean anything to me at my death?'
