Jesus started with 12. 12 men he entrusted to share the Gospel with the whole world. The whole world!? This might seem a little crazy but he had spiritual multiplication in mind.
In 2 Timothy 2:2, Paul writes to Timothy about this spiritual multiplication, asking him to entrust the Gospel to faithful people "who will have the ability to teach others as well." Spiritual multiplication is the way we will renew the world. It is the way in which we can be like St. Timothy, building up others to become leaders in this multiplying movement.
Pray for us, St. Timothy. For our current and future leaders and those that may come to know Jesus through them.
