Snippet from the Show:
The beautiful thing about our Catholic faith is that when you conform yourself to a celebrity…you lose yourself. But what Christ wants in conforming to him, instead of losing yourself, you actually gain yourself back, and become who you truly are called to be.
Resources Mentioned on this Show:
- Sherry Weddell and the Catherine of Siena Institute
- Divine Renovation a book by Fr. Mallon and Ron Huntley
- SEEK 2019
- Culture Making: Recovering our Creative Calling a book by Andy Crouch
- The Rubin Report: “A Bishop and a Rabbi Discuss Religion”, a YouTube video
5 Practical Tips

- Read Culture Making: Recovering our Creative Calling by Andy Crouch
- Pray for a specific priest that they might be able to communicate the gospel well

- Start an evangelization journal. Get a notebook dedicated for growing as an evangelist. Write about who you are praying for, mistakes you made, things you want to try, talks you have given, basically anything to do with evangelization. Write our practical tips and how well you did. This will help you grow as an evangelist.
