How to set the world on fire.

"As they prayed... they were all filled with the holy Spirit and continued to speak the word of God with boldness." (Acts 4: 31).

Peter and John reported all that happened during their imprisonment and trial to their community. The community thanked God and prayed for courage to continue the work of evangelization. God answered their prayers.

Today is the Memorial of St Catherine of Siena, Virgin and Doctor of the Church (1347 - 1380). God set St Catherine on fire with divine love and boldness in the service of the Church.

"Be who you were created to be, and you will set the world on fire." St Catherine of Siena said and lived this maxim. One of the poignant lessons of our key Scripture from Acts 4: 31 is the power of prayer. God answers prayers.

"Again, [amen,] I say to you, if two of you agree on earth about anything for which they are to pray, it shall be granted to them by my heavenly Father." (Matthew 18: 19).

How often do you pray and agree with someone over a need or intention?
