Christ calls EVERY person in the Archdiocese of Detroit to unleash the Gospel. The New Evangelization is not just for priests, deacons, and religious. Every lay person is both called and empowered to bring Christ into the secular world. Jesus seeks the transformation of every aspect of our culture: families, education, government, business, media, entertainment, sports, science, and the arts. How is this possible? By each of us asking ourselves “How is the Lord calling me to bring the Gospel into all areas of my life?” The Gospel is most effectively shared in person-to-person encounters. The New Evangelization cannot be accomplished inside church doors. We must go out, meet our brothers and sisters wherever they are on the journey, walk with them, and share with them the power of Christ’s love, mercy, and healing. “Let us go forth, then, let us go forth to offer everyone the life of Jesus Christ” (Pope Francis). Next week is about the family as “domestic church”.
