“No believer in Christ, no institution of the Church can avoid this supreme duty: to proclaim Christ to all peoples.” —St. John Paul II
All Catholics are called to evangelize. It is our supreme duty, says the Church’s newest canonized saint. To evangelize is to propose the truths of Christianity with love – not impose them. It is an invitation – not a confrontation. And it always begins with a clear and simple offer to accept Jesus Christ as who He claimed to be. That is step one. But anyone who has not been baptized or who is not practicing the Christian faith has made their decision for a reason. You, therefore, will be required to give an answer to the questions and objections to your proposal that will surely arise. Therefore, apologetics is the “handmaiden” of evangelization.
