5 thoughts on “The Gospel in less than 280 characters

  1. We are told by Christ to “go into the whole world and preach the gospel to every creature” (Mark 16:15). This command is our primal Christian duty, the seed of Holy Mother Church, directed by Christ just before His Ascension into heaven

    But I have often wondered, perhaps I am alone in this, “what *is* this gospel, specifically, I am to preach? It is not ever discussed in that way, in my experience. “Evangelize the gospel”. Ok, what is it? Here is what I have come up with.

    The Gospel, in short, is: The Kingdom of God is at hand; it is here, with us, on earth as in heaven. Its small narrow Gate to Life is open to His Elect.

    The Kingdom of God is: Christ entered His fallen creation, suffered, died, was buried, rose again, conquered sin and death, offers eternal life to those who love Him. If you wish to live: love Jesus and His Blessed Mother, follow wherever He leads, suffer and submit just as He did. Die to this doomed world. Be alive to the next.
