Why Evangelize?

I have witnessed the reality in the United States, where we are conditioned by a spirit of modernity to view religion as a private matter, where far too many Catholics grow uncomfortable with the call to evangelization and deep conversion of mind and heart. This is significant, for only from a personal relationship with Christ can effective evangelization develop. For Catholics like myself, there is a burning need to recover the certainty that we have the Truth urgently needed for the redemption of mankind.  Why evangelize? When we evangelize, we act on baptismal grace “to preach to the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ.” “To evangelize means: to show this path [toward happiness]—to teach the art of living.” If we are serious about our sonship in Christ Jesus then let us be not afraid to make the new evangelization the top priority in our lives.

Here is a wonderful little book which can help should you be willing to take your baptismal grace seriously!
