The heart of the new evangelization is not the Year of Faith, or the forthcoming Synod, or the next great pope, or the next great book, or parish program, or even all new Catholic media on the internet or the broadcast bands or in film.
No. The heart of the new evangelization is an actual beating heart.
It is the heart of Jesus that burns with love for us.
And it is our hearts that yearn to be one with his.
The heart of the new evangelization is about a Person, the Person of Jesus Christ, and our encounter—our living encounter—with him.
Everything starts there, and everything must flow back there.
I am a Catholic wife and mother of 3 young adults. I write about Catholic subject matter here and on numerous Catholic websites elsewhere. I love sharing my enthusiasm for the riches of our faith in person in parishes, at conferences, or on retreat.
I have a Masters in Theology but I remain forever a student at heart, for the more I know, the more I realize I have so much more to know!
