Contact and Invite — evangelization is just that easy. Try it during Advent.
Ping to all Catholics!
Thanks for the ping salvation! Keep up the good work!
The key is the approach.
First, you must be an informed Catholic and know the Biblical references for the teachings of the Church.
Anti-Catholics have spent the last 150 years inventing lies and misinterpretations of Catholic beliefs and practices.
So, study Catholic Apologetics and keep studying.
Second, it is most effective to be aware of opportunities to “evangelize”, rather than intruding on strangers, who have no interest in your zeal.
If you’re informed, you can gently correct misstatements, by those critical of Catholicism.
Say what? Did you miss the Crusades?
Walking the walk means more than talking the talk.
I “evangelize” with my actions but I wouldn’t push Jesus on a stranger.
You never know where a person is in their walk in life, and bad evangelism by bossy know it alls makes a lot of folks turn away from God.
