presenting the Good News IV

By Diogenes (articles ) | Jun 05, 2003

Suppose you're sponsoring the first North American Institute for Catholic Evangelization. Whom would you include on your list of major presenters?

(a) A lay speaker who challenges young adults to live the virtue of chastity.

(b) A priest who challenges young adults to live the virtue of chastity.

(c) Father Brett Hoover, CSP, who says that when a cohabiting couple comes to him for marriage preparation, he "focus[es] on the health and state of the relationship and their level of commitment to it, not on their living arrangements."

If you're the USCCB Secretariat for Evangelization, the Archdiocese of Portland, and the University of Portland, your answer is (c).
