It's an exciting time in history to be Catholic. While there seems to be no end to the bad news we see every day in the media, there's a tremendous door of opportunity for a Catholic voice to share some Good News. But will the language of that voice be understood by today's secular culture?
This is what it's all about–God calling us to reach out with the gospel in a way our culture will understand and respond to; building bridges so all may know the love of Jesus.
But let's be honest. The term ‘evangelization'—for most of us—sounds intimidating and preachy. But we recall the words of Blessed John Paul II: "I sense that the moment has come to commit all the Church's energies to a new evangelization...No believer in Christ, no institution of the Church can avoid this supreme duty: to proclaim Christ to all peoples."
So how do we fulfill this call? Timothy Cardinal Dolan tells us "the new evangelization will be fulfilled with a yes, not a no." This is our opportunity to share all of the true, good and beautiful things the Catholic Church is for, and not just what we're against.
