Take the Dread Out of Talking About Your Faith
Get Practical Strategies That Give You the Confidence to Share Your Faith with Anyone
Despite a deep faith, many Catholics lack the confidence to talk about it outside the parish
Pope Francis continually challenges all baptized Christians to actively engage in evangelization. But for the most part, it doesn't happen. Meanwhile, parish membership is dwindling.
In 2020, Mass attendance numbers were roughly half what they were in 1970 and the trend is continuing downward.
To make matters worse, sharing your faith is not easy. Today's social climate can be hostile toward Christianity and talking about it can be uncomfortable...if not done right.
The average Catholic feels ill-prepared to talk about faith with someone who doesn't believe...and frankly it's true. The Church hasn't done a great job of preparing the average person to evangelize. Yet, they say everyone should.
Some "experts" say it's the simplest thing in the world, like sharing about your favorite movie or restaurant. But is it?
There's social stigma surrounding openly talking about faith. That's not the case with movies or restaurants.
Most people think evangelization is someone else's job, like the priests or church professionals. And yet, the Church insists over and over again that everyone must have a part in it.
Truthfully, there's not enough clergy or staff to complete this work. It requires Catholics from every walk of life interacting with people they meet everyday at work, school, and social events.
Evangelization everyone's responsibility and calling. However, if you do it wrong, you could end up with egg on your face.
