My Latest over at Patheos on Evangelization

Check out my latest column on Patheos at A Word in Season, where the word is evangelization, and where I'm talking about what the heart of the new evangelization must be in us.

Here's a snip...

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.
Read it all.
