Kelly Wahlquist, assistant director of the Evangelization and Development Office for Parish Evangelization for the Association of Marian Helpers.

Kelly gave a talk, "Our Supreme Role in the New Evangelization," at Saturday's annual Divine Mercy Conference.

Catholics are freaked out by the word "evangelization." But what does that word mean? It simply means sharing the joy of your relationship with Christ. For the New Evangelization to be effective, we have to evangelize heart to heart. We have to show that joy from your heart. It has to be done through relationships.

In Matthew 20 [verse 19], Jesus tells His disciples, "Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit." He's commissioning us to go, and He makes it known to us that He is with us, that we do not do this alone.
