Pope Francis on Evangelism

So excited to hear about Pope Francis I. The suspense was killing me while I was following along on Twitter. Here is an excerpt from a 2012 interview by Francis that is exciting. 

“We seek to make contact with families that are not involved in the parish.  Instead of just being a Church that welcomes and receives, we try to be a Church that comes out of itself and goes to the men and women who do not participate in parish life, do not know much about it and are indifferent towards it. We organise missions in public squares where many people usually gather: we pray, we celebrate mass, we offer baptism which we administer after a brief preparation. This is the style of the parishes and the diocese itself. Other than this, we also try to reach out to people who are far away, via digital means, the web and brief messaging.”

Amen! Let’s get ready to gospel!

  1. SO happy to have stumbled upon your blog via a twitter referral! I am also a former Evangelical, and have written about my journey into the Catholic Church in a series entitled, “Runaway Protestant”.

    Peace be with you on this joyous day!

  2. Great blog! I too am a convert to Catholicism. Now stop showing everyone you are a newbie and drop the “I” in Pope Francis. He doesn’t get that until there is a “II”. 😉 I look forward to reading your journey.
