Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have.
1 Peter 3:15
I can’t help but think this verse is the perfect intersection between this week’s topic and the Church’s call for all of us to actively participate in the New Evangelization.
- The New Evangelization calls each of us to deepen our faith, believe in the Gospel message and go forth to proclaim the Gospel.
- The focus of the New Evangelization calls all Catholics to be evangelized and then go forth to evangelize.
- The New Evangelization invites each Catholic to renew their relationship with Jesus Christ and his Church.
In light of that, are you ready? If not, take some time this week (or during Advent) to answer the question for yourself:
What difference has knowing Christ made in your life?
How would you explain that difference to someone who asked?
