Snippet from the Show
“You have a mission as a layperson ... To not proclaim Jesus Christ and just wait for a priest to do it is a fundamental corruption to your baptismal dignity. Christ is inviting you on this mission. You don’t need anyone else’s permission.”
- “My priest isn’t into evangelization, what do I do?”
- “I have three children, none are truly evangelized, except my oldest daughter who is now evangelical, but ‘at least she has Jesus.’”
- “I am a DRE who got caught up in the catechesis game. I now want to invest in evangelism, but am at a poor parish.”

- Intercession: Pray a decade of the Rosary every day for clergy who need conversion.
