Mind Body Soul
As more and more people hear the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ, the numbers of the faithful will begin to rise and an increase in the number of vocations to the priesthood and consecrated life will follow.
Our objectives: assist in the proclamation of the gospel (to all people), and, build up the church (the Body of Christ). The by-products of these objectives are an increase in faith, as well as a rise in the number of vocations to the priesthood and consecrated life.
You have the choice between closing churches and dwindling resources or evangelization and increased stewardship.

Evangelization is so important that even God walked among us to do it. He led by example then commanded His disciples to proclaim those life-saving words to others.
Two thousand years ago Christ was the message, and He still is today. We too, as members of the Body of Christ, are obligated to continue spreading the life-giving message of the gospel.
However, the alarming trend is: decreasing faith, less parishioners, fewer churches, and a downturn in the number of vocations to the priesthood. Couple this with increased secularism and other forces at work, and the urgency becomes glaringly apparent.
We are at another critical point in history for the Catholic Church, which is why I wrote this book.
It is not a superficial analysis, nor does it pay lip service to this urgent subject. Catholic Evangelization is the most comprehensive book on practical methods of evangelization that has ever been written.
With the help of the Holy Spirit, even if you applied only one or two of the countless examples, approaches and easy-to-follow steps outlined in this book, it would bear fruit from your works.

Common reminders about evangelization:
You have to go the people; you can't expect they will come to you
Expecting that others will come to us is a mistake even high ranking Catholics, such as cardinals and bishops, often make. Sure, we must use every resource at our disposal, including electronic means. We must also continually invite others to the church, functions, rallies, gatherings etc. But evangelization, in its most basic form, is about bring the message to others.
Continually pray for help and guidance
Many of us can get caught up in the details when it comes to evangelization - in its many forms. However, the sacraments prepare us for evangelization, and the Holy Spirit guides us. Sometimes, the devil is in the details, if you pardon the expression. So don't over think it, or you may lose valuable opportunities to evangelize or never get started in the first place.
We must pray for guidance for ourselves, and pray for the conversion of the people we are evangelizing. The Lord of the universe is also the Lord of conversion. Have faith. Trust in the Lord.
Christian countries must also evangelize its immigrants for obvious reasons. For example, some Christian countries are now islamic states; many others are headed that way. So, if you enjoy your freedom and are not partial to burkas and sharia law, I strongly suggest you start evangelizing, lest they continue to overpopulate you and become your subjugators.
It is becoming more apparent that most are blinded or in denial about what is truly going on here, but we will surely pay the price for not effectively evangelizing.
Many western countries with their present institutions and way of life, were founded by Christians and built upon Christian principles. If they want to continue that way, they will have to evangelize.
Again: we will pay a heavy price for abandoning our faith (and not defending it), and for not evangelizing.
And, instead of rely so much on immigration, federal politicians need to encourage Christian families (through tax relief etc.) to have more children. It is hard for Christian families to expand when many are paying exorbitant tax rates, upwards of 15% taxes (and more) on goods and services, high property taxes, as well as insurance companies that gouge on home and auto premiums.
It is also important to remember in our prayers, the persecuted Christians in other countries.
Lead by example
Pope Francis leads by example. But I'm not too sure about many other high ranking servants of God. I would love to see cardinals and bishops pounding the pavement and bringing the word of God to others, door to door, in the streets, and also leading austere lives that would be an example to everyone. No servant is greater than his master; so we must evangelize as He did, as well as strive for moderation.
It is my belief, that you would surely see a monumental shift, if cardinals and bishops took vows of poverty, and also began to evangelize everyday in the streets, in poorer neighbourhoods, hospitals, alley ways, ghettos, worn torn areas... etc.
Evangelizing increases our own faith
Evangelizing is the most important task. Spreading the gospel helps to increase our own faith; builds up the church; and, evangelization, by its very nature, will increase vocations to the priesthood and consecrated life.
As a final note: no one should underestimate the urgency of the need to evangelize.
You will find much, much more in the book:
Paradoxically, those in western countries have misconstrued freedoms including the right to terminate/abort babies; however, under sharia law, they won't even be allowed to kill their own babies.
If you like your freedom, you will follow your faith, defend it, and evangelize! Being secular will not protect you.
Do you want to keep the status quo but are still worried about peace? Do you want to live peacefully? It's too late my friend. What most people in democratic countries don't realize is that they have already been invaded.
No other book takes such a thorough and creative examination of the innumerable and practical ways in which Roman Catholics can spread the gospel, build up the church, and at the same time deepen their faith.
This is a timely book considering the decline in the faithful and drop-off in church attendance. With church closures and reasonable estimates that less than twenty-five percent of Catholics go to mass every week, this book is truly a rally cry and wakeup call for all Catholics. It is a superb tool for clergy, parishioners, missionaries, evangelists, teachers, professors and students. With a common sense approach and easy-to-read format, even Catholics new to the faith will find it informative and inspiring. No Catholic should be without this remarkable resource!
