Dear Catholic.com visitor: Summer is here, and you may be thinking about a well-deserved vacation, family get-togethers, BBQs with neighborhood friends. More than likely, making a donation to Catholic Answers is not on your radar right now. But this is exactly the time we most need your help. The “summer slowdown” in donations is upon us, but the work of spreading the gospel and explaining and defending the Faith never takes a break. Your gift today will change lives and save souls for Christ this summer! The reward is eternal. Thank you and God bless.

The Old Evangelization

Questions Covered:

  • 12:22 - I’m a member of St. Paul’s Street Evangelization. I want to get a feel for what the core difference is between the old and the new evangelization. We’re considered new evangelization, but I feel our work is very Jesus-based.
  • 14:49 - Do I have the right motivation for wanting to go out and evangelize?
  • 17:27 - I have also noticed the Protestantization within the Church. I feel it is important for people to be properly catechized before they go out to evangelize. What are your thoughts?
  • 19:42 - One of our local churches is evangelizing after inviting people over for a barbecue. Does this fall in line with the old evangelization?
  • 28:05 - One of my favorites is the story of the rich and how Jesus evangelized them. What are your thoughts on how we can implement similar principles?
  • 32:25 - I feel our Catholic schools are part of our evangelization. I feel they have deteriorated since Vatican II and focusing on athletics. Our students don’t know about the Church. What are thoughts?
  • 40:06 - How can Jesus be a model for us to evangelize to Protestants?
  • 44:35 - How do we go about debunking the faith of Islam and introduce our faith?
  • 47:10 - Why don’t more of our priests lead Bible studies at our churches?
  • 50:33 - We have some young people evangelizing to non-believers with an online magazine. How do you balance this when a lot of our Catholic base is against us having a  dialogue with non-Christians?
