7 Qualities of a New Evangelist

I’ve been watching a lot of Word on Fire videos lately. I’ve been a fan of Father Robert Barron for quite a while, but now you can officially categorize me as a fangirl. I’m going to have t-shirts made and everything.

Recently, Father Barron described the 7 qualities of a new evangelist.

Here it is, straight from him:

And then, almost before I could get this post typed, one of my favorite bloggers, Brandon Vogt, interviewed Father Barron about this very thing.

The interview is energetic and if it doesn’t make you want to jump through the screen, then you’re much calmer than me.

What do you think?

Would you add anything?

(I would add “rockin good shoes,” but maybe I am being ever-so-slightly superficial and have spent too much time wrangling my daughters about footwear.)

In her work in the New Evangelization as a Catholic wife, mom, writer, parish employee, and catechist, she’s learned a lot of lessons, had a lot of laughs, and consumed mass amounts of coffee. She’s online at SnoringScholar.com and CatholicMom.com, and is the author of a number of books.
