The Purpose of Evangelization—Bishop Barron at the Good News Conference 2021

Bishop Robert Barron

May 11, 2022


Friends, why do we bother to evangelize? In my keynote address at the Good News Conference, I share the two main reasons. The first is to save souls from hell, both in the eternal and temporal sense, to free them from destructive patterns and bring them to healing through right praise. The second reason we evangelize is to let people know who their Lord is. We do this through living out the universal call to holiness, which includes a life committed to poverty, chastity, and obedience.
