HOW TO BRING FALLEN AWAY CATHOLICS BACK TO MASS USING THE 3 ARTICLES FROM THE IGNITING THE LIGHT OF CHRIST WITHIN YOU PARISH MISSION by Paul Koleske
STEP 1: Google these 3 articles (if you don’t google find someone who does):
- Eucharistic Miracle Lanciano, Italy
- Eucharistic Miracle Buenos Aires, Argentina
- Catalina Rivas the Mass
STEP 2: Print out each story and read it thoroughly highlighting the points that have significance to you.
STEP 3: Make a list of all the loved ones in your life who have left the church.
STEP 4: Pick 1 of the 3 articles to give or send to the people on your list.
STEP 5: Decide the best way to get the article to each person on your list:
- Hand it to them in person
- Text them the link to the article so they can pull it up on their computer or cell phone
- Mail (BEST WAY) or Email it to them with a short note
- Consider highlighting the key points for them so they at least read that
STEP 6: Write a short letter or memo telling the person:
- You heard a speaker and were touched by this information that was shared
- You wanted to share this article in hopes they’d return to Mass
- You’d like their feedback after they have read it
STEP 7: Pray the O Jesus I Surrender Myself to You Novena for yourself and for them.
STEP 8: Send another article to them on their birthday or a significant day for them – 2 more times!
STEP 9: Practice allowing yourself to let go of the outcome – RELAX and TRUST GOD to handle the rest.
STEP 10: After you have done all this CONGRATULATIONS! You have taken new action to Evangelize!!!
Some final thoughts:
– Say something like; “with this miracle being a fact, doesn’t it make sense to consider returning for Christ’s sake”?
– If you get a response where any argument or point is made against The Church simply respond, “I know how you feel. I understand. However, when I thought about that same thing I decided it was a mistake to leave Jesus and The Church for “Judas” … think about it”!
– Whenever you get anxious about their return, gently pray to your Guardian Angel asking it to go speak to their Guardian Angel about it and DO NOT JUDGE BY APPEARANCES- BELIEVE!
– This simple outline should give you the steps you can take to encourage those who have left to come back. Know that your actions greatly enhance your prayers for their return! – God loves them even more that you do, He created them. He wants then to return and nothing passes through his “sifter” unless He allows it. Thus, take the action and let it be – in His time!
