It Will Bring Others In to Worship if I Invite Them
Cruising through the town of Montrose you will encounter several businesses who hang their shingles inviting you to stop in for a visit to browse the goods they have to offer. From amongst those businesses there are more than a few that deal in the grooming of hair. With no words you can come to recognize these places by a barber pole that is used to advertise their goods. To this day the barber pole is unique to that business. When one is seen, without words the message comes across. There is one such place on Saginaw Street that displayed more than a barber pole inviting you in to purchase their goods. On the side of the building a portrait of a banquet was prominently displayed and appropriately titled, “The Invitation.” In the example of the portrait, it is our mission as Christians to pass this invitation on. If we are to bring Christ to others and to bring others to Christ, other than being a living witness ourselves, there is no better way to accomplish our mission than to present others with an invitation. Today is a good day to invite someone to Mass.
