St Pius X, exemplified a great hearth of faith: he demonstrated habitual generosity to the poor; and he showed great concern for the religious instruction of adults.

A proclaimer, minister of the word can truly work at “becoming prayer.”

The Word of God proclaimed ante Word of God lived out is what it means to “become prayer.”

When a proclaimer is able to witness to the Word of God in words and actions, she/he is closer to “becoming prayer.”

The assembly gathered to worship with you will sense the genuineness of you proclamation. They will you known you have prepared both spiritually and technically

The “door of faith” (Acts 14:27) is always open for us, ushering us into the life of communion with God and offering entry into his Church. It is possible to cross that threshold when the word of God is proclaimed and the heart allows itself to be shaped by transforming grace.
(Apostolic Letter Porta Fidei of Pope Benedict XVI)

The proclamation of the Good News at Mass will fill your heart with great love and joy.
