Sts. Philip and James, Apostles
Jesus was the master of viral marketing by getting others to spread his message. There was no internet, social media, newscast, simply people like James and Philip telling others about him. That's still the way it works. When you teach your children about Christ, you are spreading his message. There's no telling who they in turn will spread the message to!
One more thing: I sometimes use a questioning technique to get others to say something when it would have more impact coming from them than if I said it. I think that's what Philip was doing when he questioned Jesus. He spent so much time with Jesus, maybe he knew there were people nearby, like you and I, who needed to hear it explained one more time. It was the start of Philip's mission to spread the gospel.
Prayer: Lord Jesus, I want to help spread your message through all the earth. Help me to be ready to share my faith with those around me, most especially my children. In your name I pray. Sts. Philip and James, pray for me. Amen.
