Proclaim the Good News

Feast of Saint Andrew, Apostle, based on Romans 10:9-18

If you confess with your lips that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For one believes with the heart and so is justified, and one confesses with the mouth and so is saved. The scripture says, “No one who believes in him will be put to shame.” For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek; the same Lord is Lord of all and is generous to all who call on him. For, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

  But how are they to call on one in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in one of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone to proclaim him? And how are they to proclaim him unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!” But not all have obeyed the good news; for Isaiah says, “Lord, who has believed our message?” So faith comes from what is heard, and what is heard comes through the word of Christ.
But I ask, have they not heard? Indeed they have; for
“Their voice has gone out to all the earth,
and their words to the ends of the world.”

  1. Hi Megan
    Thank you for a most inspiring and convicted homily today. Simply wonderful, your proclamation of the Word (voice intonations) was just superb, encouraging and challenging. May your
    advent be truly blessed

  2. Hi Megan,
    I wish I could hear your homily. Something has happened to the transmission of sound from word.op to my computer. Perhaps the distance to Australia is the problem!!!!!. Every best wish for the coming holy season of Advent
