Read the letter below that I sent out.
Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,
My name is Ellen Mongan and I am a Catholic Christian Writer and Speaker. I reside in Martinez, Georgia with Deacon Pat Mongan M.D. who is assigned to St. Mary’s Help of Christian Church. We have 8 adult children and 12 grandchildren. Since I am a networker in the Body of Christ, many of you know me.
Why are you are receiving this letter from me? Why did I send an invitation from WBPI TV? You have received an invitation to the August March for Jesus because you are a priest, a deacon or a person in ministry in our Catholic faith. This march is a time to stand together as Christians of all denominations. This letter is written to answer any questions and explain why you should be a part of this event. I encourage you to invite others to do the same. Here is how; those associated with a radio or television station or a blog, please advertise the march. Clergy please invite the people of your parish.
Pope Francis lives out the scripture, “Love one another; for love is from God. God is love.” Pope Francis’ good example, speaks volumes to the people of this world who do not know Christ. His demonstrates through both his actions and his words how to live in unity among the Christian brethren of other denominations.
When the Incident in Baltimore took place, I was saddened. When the pastors linked arms walking in unity down the streets of that city together, hope rose in my soul. When some Christian brethren were ambushed while at church in Charleston, South Carolina; I wept. I believe Jesus wept too. This trial could harden any heart without God’s grace. A bird’s eye view of the aftermath of that tragic event was described by Father Kirby, a priest who lives in Charleston. He chose to walk to the church the Sunday following the shooting. What did He witness? “Instead of choosing to lash out in revenge, the people of Charleston responded in peace. “ Father Kirby said, “The pastor called a twenty four hour prayer vigil. When Father Kirby arrived at the church there were still people praying. “ Father Kirby’s homily touched lives. The people of Charleston chose to put action to the words of Jesus. The battle is always done on our knees with fervent prayer. This church has sadly lost lives but they did not lose hope.
In the book of Nehemiah God calls His people to rebuild the wall. They worked shoulder to shoulder together. It was a big job! Each person found a place on the wall working with all their might to build their portion. It took their time, talent, and treasure. The wall was built to last. The joy of the Lord was their strength. Now we Christians are being called to spiritually build the walls of unity. Christians from all denominations are being invited to make a stand. Help us build the wall of unity, by marching shoulder to shoulder along with our brothers and sisters in Christ. Let’s march together for Jesus our Savior and our Lord. United we stand. Divided we fall; let’s all stand for Jesus. To God Be the Glory.
