Jesus’ mandate to go and make disciples of all nations is just as binding today as it was when he first gave it to his apostles prior to His ascension into heaven. That means all of us has a responsibility to try to draw people into a life of faith, a life of active participation in the Church. That’s not always easy, as there are countless forces at play mitigating against people coming into the Church. Sadly, in our day, there are gigantic hurdles that must be overcome, not the least of which is the diminishing moral authority of the Church due to the clergy sex abuse and cover up scandal. So, how do you witness to the people in your sphere of influence in such challenging times? Do you find this difficult to do at work, in public, even within your own family?
