Everyday Evangelization

Everyday Apostles is the blog of a group of folks involved in the Christ Life apostolate of the Archdiocese of Baltimore.
A group blog helping Catholics and other Christians personally respond to the Lord Jesus' call to make disciples of all nations. Our cup of tea is personal evangelization. The words of Pope Paul VI inspire us- "In the long run, is there any other way of handing on the Gospel than by transmitting to another person one's personal experience of faith?"
Here's a quote from the latest post:
I am a waitress at a restaurant and one day I was waiting on an elderly man sitting by himself. He asked me why I seemed so happy, and I ended up telling him about my relationship with the Lord. It was a great conversation and he talked about his life in the military, and how he knows he needs the Lord more in his life. It is these daily, small opportunities God puts in our lives that can have a lasting impact on people's lives, and I need to be more open to them!

The beautiful thing about sharing Christ is that we are not expected to do it on our own. The Holy Spirit comes and anoints our words so that we are simply instruments of the Lord. Dave Nodar expands on how to share Christ with others through the power of the Holy Spirit in Christlife's most recent podcast "Called to Share Christ". I hope this podcast will inspire us all to enter into the mission field of making disciples by sharing Christ with others!
There's a neat podcast on the page as well. What a wonderful apostolate, and what a wonderful spirit these folks have!
