Leading Them Home

A Current News item over at jogged my memory regarding one of the most powerful evangelization tools I have seen in a long time, if ever. It is a 2-minute video aired by EWTN several times during last week's visit of Pope Benedict XVI to this country. Targeting inactive Catholics, the video stresses the history, the beauty, and the spirituality of the Church. Some people have forgotten the true value of what they have left, while others never knew or understood it in the first place. Either way, this video brings all of that to the forefront in an an extremely effective presentation.

The video is entitled Epic and is produced by Catholics Come Home, Inc., a 10-year old apostolate “that creates effective and compassionate media messages and broadcasts them nationally and internationally, in order to inspire, educate and evangelize inactive Catholics and others, and invite them to live a deeper faith in Jesus Christ, in accord with the magisterium of the Roman Catholic Church.

Epic encourages people to visit the Catholics Come Home web site where they will find a wealth of information about the Catholic Church, much of it in video format, along with other things such as the testimonials of 17 people who have recently returned to the Church.

Epic is also on the web site. Just scroll down to the bottom of the home page where you will find it along with two other great productions, Movie and Testimonials.
