I really enjoyed the Oriens leading article “A Light Shining In The Darkness” (Autumn 1997).
Too often “traditional” Catholics not only shy away from, but look askance at, “evangelical” Catholics. This is unfortunate as all Christians, and especially Catholic Christians, are called to preach the Gospel to the four corners of the earth by none other than Christ Himself.
Being evangelical is not an option. It is a command from Jesus to his followers. After working out their own sanctification in Christ, the greatest “work” Catholics can do is to be completely evangelical in their witness for Christ – that means sharing the Good News with family, friends co-workers and strangers. Catholics need to be about winning souls for Christ.
As I said, traditional Catholics often seem put off by this. Your article is exactly the type of message that many traditionalists need to hear and take to heart
Thanks for saying what needs to be said.
