It's time for new blood.

It's time to evangelize and/or re-evangelize by bringing in new members. The Lord Jesus clearly calls each of the baptized to evangelize, and one of the ways to do this is to evangelize and re-evangelize our baptized brother Catholics.

Eucharist: Reaffirmation of the Primacy of God

The following is a homily given by Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI in 2011.  It is a poignant message that applies to us today as much as it did the first time he gave it.
