Father Joachim\'s relates a catechetical tale reminding us that God doesn\'t have a backup plan for evangelizing the world, we are the plan. Do we use the gifts we have been given for God\'s glory or our own? We have no choice but to evangelize, life does have meaning, love is more powerful than hate, and we must be Christ in the world today. If we don\'t do, it won\'t be done!
