Talk @ UBC

This (early) evening, I gave a talk @ UBC for the Newman Club. A few members of the Chinese CATSO also came. I talked about witnessing for Christ by Word, Example, & Prayer.

By Word:

  • We need to learn the basic of the Faith
  • We also need to discover the "why" of the Catholic teachings
  • We should keep up our knowledge by readings, by also to use tools like Cd's & DVD
  • Dialogue with other people should begin with what units us (i.e. common ground)

By Example:

  • Message should be accompanied by sign
  • Our good example is the sign that back up our message
  • We should love the people we evangelize (we need to touch not just their mind, but their heart)
  • Evangelization is normally accomplished by person-to-person encounter
  • In this secular society, the greatest proof of Catholicism is Holiness

By Prayer:

  • Other things might be dispensable, but prayer & sacrifice are indispensable in apostolic life
  • The Grace of God is the main cause of conversion & sanctification. Thus, in order for our apostolic works to bear fruits, we need to have a deep interior life
  • There are many souls whom we cannot reach out physically. But we can always reach out to them spiritually by prayer & sacrifice
