EDITOR | Simple expressions of faith

Evangelization can seem overwhelming, but it really is just a simple offering of joyous witness to our Christianity

We often hear about the call to evangelize. Our Great Commission — to go and make disciples of all nations — sounds like a great responsibility. It certainly feels daunting at times.

Maybe we overthink it. Maybe evangelization should be as simple as offering joyous witness to our Christianity, in everything you do.

Consider sisters Cori Breen and Cami Flynn, whom we profile in the cover story this month. Their faith is on display at the Grotto Grill in Flint Hill not only in the symbols on the restaurant’s walls — crosses, fish, statuary — but in their daily approach to life. Cori just finished the archdiocesan Lay Formation Program, and she and Cami participate in ACTS.

Cami explained to reporter Joseph Kenny that outwardly expressing their faith is simply part of who they are. Even making a small impact is a big deal. “It’s about doing something we love that we can support our families on and giving back to the community,” Cami said.

Of course, this takes some confidence, especially when it’s easy to feel that Christian values are quickly criticized and rejected. That confidence might come through good formation and prayer, both foundational elements of evangelization. It may also come from knowing that wherever you go, there you are — with Christ.
