Fr. Barron on Evangelization
CNA has a summary of an interview with Fr. Robert Barron. He was recently named Rector of Mundelein Seminary in Chicago. In the interview he talks about what his experience with Word on Fire has taught him about evangelizing. He makes four points: (1) Show ardor for the faith; (2) immerse yourself in Scripture and Tradition; (3) know the culture; and (4) use the new media. I think this is an excellent checklist for each of us, not only for evangelization, but also for catechesis and liturgical preaching (I expect there are some great homilies circulating on You-tube). The whole interview is interesting and worth a read.
