But some did join him, and became believers

“When they heard about resurrection of the dead, some began to scoff, but others said, ‘We should like to hear you on this some other time.’ And so Paul left them. But some did join him, and became believers. Among them were Dionysius, a member of the Court of the Areopagus, a woman named Damaris, and others with them.” (ACTS 17: 32-34)

Our mission to share our faith with others is not based on numbers or some spectacular success. When Paul spoke about the Gospel, he spoke to all who were there, but only “some did join him, and became believers.” To our children or to our friends, to our neighbors or to our coworkers—we share, and we are witnesses, but God touches hearts, He converts.

“I will ask the Father and he will give you another Advocate to be with you always.” (Gospel Acclamation)
