When Jesus entered the city of Jerusalem, the crowd cried out “Blessed is the King who comes in the name of the Lord! Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!”
Some Pharisees were offended and told Jesus to rebuke them. But Jesus answered, “If these were silent, the very stones would cry out.”
Like those Pharisees, secular societies discourage the public display of Christian faith. But like stones that are crying out, faith finds a way. Whether it is in an IXTHYS fish affixed to a bumper, a necklace with a cross, or a Christian T-shirt – or helping to grow Mary’s gold!
Growing Marigolds is a beautiful, humble, joyful way of proclaiming Christian faith to the whole world.
“Rejoice in the Lord always…
“And again I say rejoice!”
“Go out into the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation.”
“For here the saying holds true, ‘One sows…and another reaps.'”
