Apostles for a New Time
By Fr. Jonas Abib

God has invested a lot in us and now is convoking all of us again. If you have given up everything, hurry back! It is a great calling and convocation made by the Pope John Paul II himself.
Jesus calls us through the words of our Pope: He is convoking us to be fishermen of human beings again. At the beginning of the spiritual retreats for the youth, after the strenuous endeavor of a day of speeches, testimonies and group work, we would be up all night through, talking to those young people to help them leave from their condition of sin, guiding them toward God, helping them to understand things, so that they could afterwards go into confession: it was our way of fishing.
We spent overnight throwing our nets, and the result of the fishing always abounded. In fact we were doing first quality evangelization although we were not completely aware of that. Everything happened by inspiration with a lot of zeal and stamina.
Today, God is calling back all those who got distant. All those who have worked with us or in other movements in the Church.
Those who preached, those who gave testimony, those who helped pulling the nets full of fish with their work and prayers. All of you are called back! Many have returned to the "sea of life" due to a thousand different reasons, though all of them are marked: they belong to the Lord. They are Apostles. They are fishermen of souls.
It is necessary to look for them, fish them again without fear. Today the number of fish is enormous and it is important to have a big team. We have to gather all previous workers and veterans together with new inexperienced workers so that we can set forth together to a vast evangelization effort: we ought to "fish souls" in great quantity!
These are new times; we are already living a new millennium. A new convocation is being made. It is necessary to gather the first hour workmen. The challenge is enormous. In Brazil there are at least 100 million non-evangelized baptized people. The Lord Himself is convoking the Apostles of this new time.
