Catholic Evangelism in America

SKU: 2689D


Father George William Rutler's 1985 Homeletic and Pastoral Review article on evangelism is professionally narrated and addresses the power of the current pontiff (John Paul II) and modern media to convert people. "The Church must be prepared for converts and converts must be prepared for the Church" If evangelism is effective the Church should expect converts, but today the idea of converts seems strange to most Catholics today. Relativism and secular humanism have destroyed the grounds for belief and thus the conviction needed to convert non-Catholics. The "Spirit of the Council", Americanism, and modernism has worked against any encouragement of American Catholics to be evangelists.
