Once again 'thank you' for spreading the good news. Our parish is celebrating the closing of its 100 year Anniversary this evening with Bishop Jugis, Charlotte Diocese.
St. John the Baptist Church in Tryon NC under the Pastor, Fr. Winslow, has grown into a parish
of active faith. Sacred Worship, Care for the Poor, and Evangelizaton is dynamically alive and I am proud to be a member of the church.

we are drowning in governement programs--who are the most poor and vulnerable? Babies in the womb?
Why does the Church shy away from this?

Wonderful lesson as usu. Funny that the hardest part for me is the evangelisation calling. Worshiping God, easy, helping the poor, kind of easy, evangelizing, hard. As Fr. Barron states, it is difficult to get out of the secular norms regarding telling others about our faith in God. I've said for years that is doesn't help that most of us have bad examples of "evangelisation" which is usu a TV evangelist telling us to send money or some misguided college campus nut who says everything is sin, neither of which is evangelizing God but merely promoting themselves for the former and or their own salvation with a lack of caring for others, ie, the college kids in the latter.

Thanks Fr. Barron to remind me that the three go together and don't have to be divisive! God bless

I am the worst possible Roman Catholic. I am spiritually lazy. Wishy washy....and a mess in most ways... As a cradle Catholic in his 60s with 12 years of Catholic education under my belt I'd expect to be stronger. My personal piety is practically non existent...one thing in my behalf is that I am a plodder.....I keep putting one foot in front of the other and stay on the journey. Thank you for all the time and effort that is being put into wordonfire.org. I find it very spiritual nourishing! I listen to the MP3s while working.

Paul, I am willing to bet that you are a lot harder on yourself than God is. I'm learning every day how much God loves us as we are, and Jesus said he was called to this world to save the sinners. I think you are doing exactly the right thing by "putting one foot in front of the other". Just remember, we aren't on this journey alone, we are filled with the Holy Spirit and that is where we will get our strength.

Paul, Cheryl has some good advice but it is hard keep plodding alone. Consider making a Cursillo weekend. It is a short course on our Catholic faith and you will soon find out on your weekend that you are in the company of other men like you or were like you and have found out what it truly means to be a Catholic Christian. Not only will you end up knowing what path you are on now and what path the Lord is calling you to be on, but you will have friends to help you on your journey for the rest of your life.

Somone needs to start saying, "When you love God, you love what God loves, the rich and the poor."
