My Writings. My Thoughts.
Picking up from where we left off from the previous episode, we will continue to explore the many reasons/excuses (what I call Evange-lies and Misconcep-tions) that Catholics use to justify their failure to evangelize and will seek to counter these with the Church’s authentic teaching on Evangelization as found in the Scriptures, the New Catechism, the documents of the Second Vatican Council and Papal documents.
As Christians we know that Jesus was sent by the Father in the power of the Holy Spirit to evangelize a fallen world with the Gospel of salvation. During his earthly ministry Jesus called and formed his disciples to join him in carrying out that very mission of making disciples of all nations. This holy obligation and sacred duty was not limited to the apostles but was intended for all believers and followers of Jesus Christ, regardless of their state in life. Sadly, not all Catholics recognize that by virtue of their baptism and Confirmation, they have been anointed and appointed to evangelize. Unfortunately for many, the “Great Commission” has become “The Great Omission”. In this episode of “Making Disciples” we will outline a basic theology of evangelization and begin to explore the reasons why so many Catholics fail to recognize their call to share Christ with others.
