We had quite a positive response today on our first outreach to London, many tracts and rosaries were taken. It was good to attend Mass at Westminster Cathedral first and then have our witness in view of the Cathedral. Although there was only three of us, we were greatly encouraged, and information was given to a number of Catholics regarding the work of St Paul Street Evangelization.
Please pray that more people will respond to the need to reach others with our faith.
I thought this was interesting little article, it almost mirrors my own journey home to the Catholic Church. I still cannot understand why it took me so long, it was six years of constant interaction with one faithful and loving priest, and I would not or could not budge an inch from my stance. I had all the ammunition I needed against Catholics, lots from the Chick publication and other anti catholic books. I knew all the arguments to hit Catholics I came across. The worship of Mary, praying for the dead, idol worship, confessing to a man, and all the usual old chestnuts.
Then one day the penny dropped, so for this reason I cannot be too hard on the evangelicals and protestants out there. The anti catholic mind set I had ran so deep, I had a total misunderstanding of Luther, the reformation, totally ignored the early church fathers. What an experience it was to eventually be catholic! The sacrament of confession, what a misunderstood gift that is. I am unable to express in words the relief and sense of forgiveness I received. I do not think it can be understood until you experience it, I was on my knees in tears, almost unable to speak. That’s usually difficult for me!!
I often try and analyse the situation I was in, probably the lesson was to forget what I thought I knew! Also, NOT to judge the catholic faith on the Catholics, the priests or even the Pope. And history, what a blessing to read the early church fathers, and not forgetting more recent times, blessed John Henry Newman, especially his sermon on “Religion of the day”
Sometimes I wonder if things can get much worse, evil never has limits! What Next?

I liked this display, could you imagine a thousand Catholics standing along this bridge united and making a stand for the most vulnerable and innocent unborn? The Bible tells us in Proverbs 24:12 “Rescue those who are being taken away to death; hold back those who are stumbling to the slaughter.” What a Word that is for us today.
A WAKE UP CALL!
Michael Voris delivered a powerful challenging message on the 1st of May, at The Regent Hall, Oxford Street He made it perfectly clear that there is no time for the description “I am a Catholic”, said in the same way as one might say “I am an Irishman.” To be Catholic is who we are; the correct description should be “I am Catholic” and chuck away the indefinite article. A serious erosion of this amazing Catholic faith is taking place. He addresses this and looks at “What faithful Catholics should be doing to fulfill Our Lords Words “Go and make disciples of all nations.”
St Paul Street Evangelization Berkshire wants to rise to this challenge and get out into the market place and share this wonderful gift of faith that we have. We live in a time now where words like, “accommodation”, “tolerance and being “nonjudgmental” are simply not stances that a Catholic can take!
We seem to be in a place where what is good is called evil and what is evil is being called good. We cannot simply attend Mass and thinks thats us settled, we will all end up in Heaven one day! I cannot find that in the Bible, we need to love one another, suffer for the gospels sake. As a nation we abort around 200,000 babies each year, since 1967 we have aborted the population of Scotland, 7 million babies that bear the face of our Lord! God help us.
May those who God knows be encouraged with His Grace to join with us and go to the streets, share our faith, hand out rosaries, pray for people, and watch God move in peoples lives.

Welcome to your local chapter of St. Paul Street Evangelization.
St. Paul Street Evangelization is a grassroots, non-profit organization, dedicated to responding to the mandate of Jesus to preach the Gospel to all nations by taking our Catholic Faith to the streets. We do this in a non-confrontational way, allowing the Holy Spirit to move in the hearts of those who witness our public Catholic presence.
Christ’s call to evangelize was made to every Catholic Christian, and the Second Vatican Council reiterated this need, urging each of the baptized to bring the Gospel, found fully in the Catholic Church, to a culture that has largely reverted to paganism. As an on-the-street Catholic evangelization organization, St. Paul Street Evangelization provides an avenue for you to share the Person of Jesus Christ and the truth and beauty of the Catholic Faith with a hungry culture.
