Is the Call to New Evangelization for YOU or Everyone Else?

"The New Evangelization depends largely on the domestic Church. In our time, as in times past, the eclipse of God, the spread of ideologies contrary to the family and the degradation of sexual ethics are intertwined. Just as the eclipse of God and the crisis of the family are linked, so the New Evangelization is inseparable from the Christian family." --Pope Benedict XVI, Plenary Assembly of the Pontifical Council for the Family

You go to Mass, perhaps you are even a daily communicant. Maybe you help in a ministry at your parish by serving as an EMHC, CCD instructor or greeter. All of this is wonderful and certainly pleasing to God. What concrete things are you doing to evangelize others -- those who are lost sheep, wandering without direction - and bringing them to Christ? Think of the possibilities. This would be a great ministry for people in the RCIA program, Confirmation class students and youth groups. If you have an idea on how to bring the Lighthouse Media program to your parish, please do share it via comment or e-mail. Share the video with your Pastor, lay ministers and other fellow Catholics. God is calling you and me.

Lent begins February 22 this year!  Now is the time to get the program in the works at your parish and watch it grow!  "My brethren, if anyone among you wanders from the truth and someone brings him back, let him know that whoever brings back a sinner from the error of his way will save his soul from death and will cover a multitude of sins."[Jas. 5:19-20]
