EVANGELISATION

WHAT IS EVANGELISATION?

the Call to Fatima evangelisationEvangelisation means bringing  the Good News of Jesus into every human situation. Evangelisation leads to conversion. Evangelization is not an optional add-on. It is at the very heart of what it means to be Catholic followers of the Lord.

He commanded them: “Go into the whole world and proclaim the gospel to every creature. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved; whoever does not believe will be condemned.” Mk 15:15-16

Pope John Paul II suggested:” The New Evangelisation should be carried out new in zeal, new in method and new in expression.”

We all  can and should  evangelise. It helps us to grow as a Christians, as well as grow our communities. Evangelisation helps to bring back the lost souls back to God, bringing HOPE, FAITH and LOVE into their lives.

Jesus was the first and greatest evangeliser. He came to proclaim the Good News of the Kingdom of God.  If we want to follow in the footsteps of Christ, then we must become evangelisers too.

HOW DO WE EVANGELISE?

We can evangelise by listening. When we listen, we enter into a person’s heart, mind and soul. We see their search for meaning, we catch a glimpse of their struggle or their pain.

We can share our faith. We can tell others how the Holy Spirit has worked in our lives. We can also share our faith through actions that demonstrate the ways in which we try to live authentically the Gospel Message.

We can evangelise by extending an invitation. It might be an invitation to come to Mass, to come back to Sacraments of the Church or to some other Catholic devotion, to talk with a priest or spiritual advisor, to read a book, to listen to a lecture, to asist in some ministry, to pray together or to attend a parish social event.

Evangise praying. Pope John Paul II tells us “There must be unceasing prayer to nourish the desire to carry Christ to all men and women.” Pope John Paul II also adds, “For the disciple of Christ the duty to evangelise is an obligation of love.”

Let’s become the true disciples of Christ! Evangelisation today is needed more than ever!

Apparition of Our Lady in Fatima 13th July 1917

The 13th of July, 1917

A few moments after arriving at the Cova da Iria, near the holmoak, where a large number of people were praying the Rosary, we saw the flash of light once more, and a moment later Our lady appeared on the holmoak.

“What do you want of me?” I asked.

“I want you to come here on the 13th of next month, to continue to pray the Rosary every day in honour of Our Lady of the Rosary, in order to obtain peace for the world and the end of the war, because only she can help you.”

“I would like to ask you to tell us who you are, and to work a miracle so that everybody will believe that you are appearing to us.”

“Continue to come here every month. In October, I will tell you who I am and what I want, and I will perform a miracle for all to see and believe.”

Fátima Film night in Dungloe, Co.Donegal

Fátima Film night in Dungloe, Co.Donegal

The presentation of double award winning film titled “The Call to Fatima” will take place in St Cronas’ Church, Dungloe, Co. Donegal on Friday, 9th July at 7.30 pm. This presentation includes film clips, producers’ talk and lovely music by a special guest soprano Louise Irvine.

“The Call to Fatima” film is based on Sister Lucia’s writings, the last visionary of the Fatima apparitions. The film’s producer had received several requests to have it shown in different parishes around Ireland, including St Mel’s Cathedral in Longford, St Eunan’s Cathedral in Letterkenny, St Joseph’s Church in Dublin, SMA in Cork City and many more, as well as abroad.
The film, which took seven years to complete, was produced by Dubliner, Thomas McCormack, and has already won awards at film festivals in Poland (“St Maximilian Kolbe” award) and Belarus (“Magnificat 2009” award) for education.

“The Call to Fatima” has two parts: the first part tells the story of apparitions, prophecies, secrets and talks about the lives and deaths of three little children- Jacinta and Francisco Marto and their cousin Lucia dos Santos. The second part gives a viewer deeper inside in understanding the meaning of Fatima Message, which is as relevant today as was back in 1917.

Much of the second film was shot on location behind the Carmel monastery in Coimbra and many of the voice-overs including Sr. Lucia’s own singing voice, are from those who knew Sr Lucia personally, cousins, nephews, Carmelite nuns, her private doctor, close priests and friends. Altogether these people came to play a key part to bring this film to light.
St Crona’s Church welcomes everybody to attend this film night. Fore more information please contact PP Fr Seámus Meehan on 074-9521008. For further information on the film and its producers, simply log onto Web: www.thecalltofatima.com or Blog: www.thecalltofatima.wordpress.com
