Evangelizing at Work ( 14:34)

Hi Fr. Josh,

Thank you so much for your podcast, I love listening to it and it constantly calls me on! My question for your regards corporate evangelism. I was wondering how you believe people should go about evangelization in the corporate space. In today’s society, if someone gets offended by something you say or interprets something the wrong way, there can be serious consequences. On the other hand, we are all called to be missionary disciples in some way. I was wondering if you had advice on how to approach spreading the gospel to people at work without overstepping boundaries or putting myself in a dangerous position.

Best,

Chris

Being a Good Godparent (17:41)

Fr. Josh, as a godparent of three children, it has recently dawned on me the great responsibilities that I have to my godchildren. I frequently pray for them whenever I pray for all my nieces and nephew but I feel like I should be doing more. What more can I do for them to help them grow in their faith?

Supporting your Local Priest  (23:52)

Hey Fr. Josh,

How do I best support my local priest? Recently, I have noticed that he is going through a tough time with a small group of parishioners who are negative and are speaking untruths about him. My priest is compassionate, caring and loves his parish family. He has gone above and beyond to help our parish. What specifically may I do to help him during this difficult time.

  • Father, I have been hearing about the Enlightment Of Conscious which is apparently suppose to occur this fall(Oct). If this is so important and imminent to happen why are we not hearing anything from the Vatican or in our local parishes about it and it’s urgency? Apparently Saint Faustina predicted this in her diary and will happen soon. Is there credence to this and the time frame for it occurring? I am a strong beliver in trying to be as prepared as possible since we don’t know when the Lord will come, but in this case some people may be overacting. This is suppose to be the precursor to the 3 Days Of Darkness. Please let me know your thoughts on this. PAX & God Bless.
