I wrote this article awhile back, but I reference it now because of the new challenges we face after the election. Now more than ever, I believe our mission as Catholics to evangelize and recatechize our culture will be all the more difficult and perhaps even perilous. As I point out in this article, if we want to make converts, we must begin by converting our own hearts. The former always follows the latter, not vice versa.
I hope you find it helpful.
