A Clever Picture and 1,000 Words Too

Resources about and for the New Evangelization:

There is a clever little visual presentation (link below) from  --  It is called "This is Discipling." It is posted on YouTube.

On a related note, a new document has come from the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB).

                         Disciples Called to Witness: The New Evangelization

The statement focuses on reaching out to Catholics, practicing or not, who have lost faith.

“Every Catholic has a role in the Church, and every Catholic is called to spread the Gospel,” said Bishop David L. Ricken of Green Bay, Wisconsin, chairman of the USCCB Committee on Evangelization and Catechesis. “But in order to evangelize, a person must first be evangelized. This is really the heart of the New Evangelization.”

The document says, “The New Evangelization is a call to each person to deepen his or her own faith, have confidence in the Gospel, and possess a willingness to share the Gospel. It is a personal encounter with the person of Jesus . . . which brings the lens through which people experience the Church and the world around them.”
