Today, the blog tour for my book, Under the Influence of Jesus: The Transforming Experience of Encountering Christ, visits catechist extraordinaire, Marc Cardaronella, who aptly describes himself as a “passionate Catholic; evangelical catechist; experimental evangelist; former naval aviator; revert; and wannabe changemaker!”
I’m Marc. I work at a Catholic parish in Central Illinois, and I have a passion for evangelization.
This is where parish leaders, catechists, and parents can find ideas, information, and resources for handing on the beauty of the Catholic Faith in a way that inspires others to change their lives for Christ.
This life-change, or conversion, is the key factor missing in parish catechetical programming today, and it is an integral part of the New Evangelization.
Perhaps your 8th grade confirmation students don’t believe in Jesus, or your RCIA candidates don’t return after Easter. Maybe you’re a parent who wants live faith in your family and make sure your kids to have a loving relationship with Jesus Christ.
Everything here is designed to help you effectively communicate the Catholic faith and impact lives.
I can’t thank Marc enough for his thorough and enthusiastic review of my book! He articulates the following point so well:
This is not merely an intellectual investigation of Jesus. If these new realities resonate with you and you realize you want them, it will require something from you. You must repent and change.
Be sure to visit Marc’s blog regularly for inspiration to renew your faith and your zeal to share that faith with others!
