ProselytizingQueensIt’s becoming a common sight in Queens, NY — swarms of evangelicals, from places like Ohio and North Carolina, thrusting pamphlets into the hands of Indians, Tibetans and Pakistanis, that read: “If you do not believe in Jesus, you are already condemned to a burning Hell!”

At the end of World Youth Day Pope Francis told the young people: “Many came as disciples, you all leave as missionaries.” For Catholics, missionary activity needs to be joined with a correct understanding and consistent living out of the Gospel — in communion with the Lord.

Any huckster can proclaim Jesus Christ, but for Christianity to truly spread people have to act with love.
