Denver Advocates: Fr. Joe's Cookies

Acts 9: 3-7

As he neared Damascus on his journey, suddenly a light from heaven flashed around him. He fell to the ground and heard a voice say to him, “Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me?”

“Who are you, Lord?” Saul asked.

“I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting,” he replied. “Now get up and go into the city, and you will be told what you must do.”

God calls each of us by name. Where is He asking us to go? Last month, Fr. Joe Carey visited Denver and shared this reading with the city’s ACE Advocates and Teaching Fellows as they gathered to celebrate Mass and enjoy dinner. Telling the story of St. Paul’s conversion, he reminded the group that Jesus calls each person by name. Fr. Joe issued this challenge: don’t stop at being leaders in daily life; think creatively about how past ACE teachers could use their knowledge and lived experience to better guide and support new ACE Teachers.
