Faith Challenge: Invite someone to the “feast.” It may be through prayer, words or even actions. Ask Jesus what He wants the invitation to be. When He answers, agree to try it, but surrender it to Him—don’t be afraid. It is His invitation. Let’s pray that we can save many tiny hearts by the conversion of big ones. Jesus, I trust in you.

Faith Quote: “The dignity of life is linked not only to its beginning, to the fact that it comes from God, but also to its final end, to its destiny of fellowship with God in knowledge and love of Him.” ~ St. Ireneus
