Truth vs Relativism - 2022-04-03

April 10, 2022

[Truth vs Relativism] E. Chuck was on his own last session. But, of course, he “wasn’t alone”, due to your prayer support. Thank you so much!

A family of three came to the table, the husband said he was about to be deployed overseas with the military and began a conversation about that with John, the parking lot attendant. The little boy (5-7 years old) took a Rosary, then asked what it was for. E. Chuck told him about prayer and God, but the child had a blank look on his face. His mother began to tell him, for the first time, about God and Heaven and Hell. Into her loose explanation, e. Chuck inserted Jesus Christ and how He saved us. She agreed with that addition. Then the evangelist pointed to the Crucifix and its depiction of what Christ did for us, and showed him the pictures in the Rosary pamphlet. But the boy continued to look confused. Then the mother said that she believes in God and Jesus but is not interested in any particular religion, and so hadn’t gotten around to telling her boy about it. The mother then told her son that he could choose any religion he wanted and that was okay, but that she would tell him more about God and Jesus when they got home. She then picked up a Divine Mercy prayer card so the boy would know what Jesus looks like. The evangelist entreated them to go through the Rosary pamphlet together and to practice praying it together. He also wished the father a safe deployment. Holy Mother, please pray for this confused mother that she will point her son to your Son.

A family of five declined a Rosary, but the three children gathered around the table asking what the Rosaries were for. E. Chuck gave a quick explanation of the Good News and the Rosary prayer, but said they couldn’t have one unless their parents said it was okay. The mother then said that it was okay if they take one between the three of them, and she would talk to them about it at home. Holy Spirit, grow the seed of Faith in that family.

A Catholic man broke away from his group to choose a Rosary for his son. He said he didn’t need a pamphlet, but e. Chuck convinced him to take one for the boy to use, and to pray through it together with his son. Other Catholics stopped at the table during the hour to choose a Rosary, often for a loved one. Lord Jesus, draw them each into a deeper relationship with You and each other through the prayer of Your Mother.

When offered a Rosary, a man on a bicycle politely said, “No thank you, I worship [the enemy of his very soul]”, and sped past. Pray the man is released from captivity to the father of lies!

Two men came to the table to choose a Rosary each. Then they told e. Chuck that they were “making rosaries” at the other end of the business park and giving them out (selling them?). They showed the evangelist what they were making: it wasn’t a Rosary but some kind of non-Christian prayer beads. They said they believed in Jesus, but also liked to practice an eastern-style meditation. So, e. Chuck talked about the difference between Christianity and the religion they claimed, and the very different focus on Jesus within the Rosary. He also told them that not all prayer beads are the same just because beads and string are involved. They continued discussing the differences. Then they wanted to know what the Divine Mercy cards were about, so the evangelist gave them each one after using it to point out that the fact that God became man and sacrificed Himself for us is the biggest difference between Christianity and all other religions. They reiterated that they believe in Jesus. One man chose a Rosary for his wife, who was back at their table. Draw them into Your Church, Lord, so they can become grounded in You, the Truth.

“John”, the parking lot attendant, arrived at the table in the middle of the conversation with the two men above and, after they left, he expounded on his theory that all religions lead to God and so no religion can say it is the only way. Among other things, the evangelist explained that the Catholic Church was not just a human institution subject to the fallibility of man, but a Divine institution full of fallible people subject to a loving God. Pray that John seeks Jesus alone and joins His family.

That’s all the conversational encounters from last week. The rest were each grab-and-go with little time to explain anything.

Altogether, the lone evangelist gave away 10-15 Rosaries and its pamphlet, as well as 3 Divine Mercy prayer cards.

Please pray for us again today? Ask God to send people to us with hearts prepared to perceive their need for Our Savior Jesus Christ and His Holy Catholic Church, and that much good fruit for His Kingdom comes of today’s efforts.


The Christian message is getting lost in our society’s fear of objective truth. We reach whom we can, to at least plant a seed of hope. So thank you again for your prayers and other support for this apostolate. In turn, May God protect and greatly bless you and all those you love!
