Hope the US bishops were paying attention, ping.
yes, because “strategies” and “planning” and “conferences” and “interfaith gatherings” and all the other hoopla crap is what really gets someone to have faith in Christ.
If we all did a better job just living the faith, we’d have a lot of people who aren’t Christians, considering it as a good way to go. this has time and time again been shown to be the best way, the most genuine way, to bring others to Christ and a saving faith in him. You have to give a damn and actually care about people and make it personal. Think about how we talk about having a “personal relationship with Jesus Christ”. Personal.
Watching now the departure ceromony going on now on EWTN for Pope Francis. It was a wonderful week watching this WYD in Rio.
