How do we communicate God’s word in the midst of our daily lives?
Christ has commissioned us to spread the good news of his salvation, but our busy schedules, our inexperience and our fears can all silence us.
The Holy Spirit opens doors for us in our daily interactions with others. Through these, we can effectively evangelize with gentle conversation, listening, friendship and teaching. Above all, we can witness to Christ’s love through the example set by our own lives.
This package from our partner Catholic News Service examines our call to evangelize, and offers insights as to how we can fulfill our mission.
The extraordinary mission of ordinary Catholics
The catechism’s call to evangelize is a summons to sainthood, one that we can fulfill by building friendships and praying for others.
Anyone can evangelize — here’s how
Speaking the word of God to others starts with listening to them, then sharing our faith with gentleness and compassion.
The prophets as communicators of God’s word
Before Christ revealed the fullness of God, the prophets were the channel of the divine word. These ancient voices — often strange and challenging — continue to inspire our mission today.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
