more on the work of priests: pray for them
This is Fr. C John McCloskey III, who runs Washington DC's Catholic Information Center, as quoted in by Terry Mattingly in his column email-distributed on his list this morning:
"All I am doing is what Catholic priests must do," said McCloskey. "I'm sharing the Gospel of Christ, offering people spiritual direction and, when they are ready, bringing them into the church. .......It's a matter of always proposing, never imposing, never coercing and merely proclaiming that we have something to offer to all Christians and to all people.
"Call it evangelism. Call it evangelization. It's just what we're supposed to do."
