Understanding the Breach 

The “Evangelization” episode speaks of evangelization as invitation, as helping people come to know the “one thing that matters,” which is Jesus Christ. 

Thomas Wurtz says evangelization is not rooted in arrogance, but in sharing a message that brings fulfillment and salvation. It is not about “winning the argument,” but about telling someone else the good news that there is a creator who loves them, has a plan for them and offers the healing power of mercy. 

Bricks For The Breach

“The key to living the faith isn’t hitting people upside the head with a catechism. The key is to be Christ to others. So one of the things that we have to recognize with regard to conversion is that conversion is the work of the Holy Spirit. You know we can plant seeds, but it’s the Holy Spirit that causes them to flourish.” (Kevin Lowry) 


Sword of the Spirit

The eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had ordered them. When they saw him, they worshiped, but they doubted. Then Jesus approached and said to them, “All power in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, until the end of the age.” (Matthew 28:16-20)
