Our Mission

Our Mission

Our mission is rooted in John Paul II’s call for the faithful to engage in the New Evangelization, which was encouraged by Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI and is being realized through Pope Francis’ leadership. With over 50 contributors in the United States, and some guest posts from abroad, we seek to reach Catholics and non-Catholics where they are in their understanding of the Faith. The goal is to challenge readers and contributors alike to stretch, grow, and immerse ourselves in the Faith more deeply, which is achieved through a variety of topics and, as our catch phrase goes – We are a group of women who share a passion for the Faith by blogging. From humor to critical thinking pieces, we’ll keep you on your toes! – you will find that our posts cover not only many different topics regarding the Faith, but with so many contributors, the approach to topics also varies.


What is the inspiration behind the CS mission?

Pope Paul VI’s apostolic exhortation, Evangelii Nuntiandi plays a significant role in the mission of the blog. Foundress Martina Kreitzer adopted and incorporates the spirit of the encyclical, but particularly paragraph 41 into the blog. This approach is also taught at her parish Adult Faith Formation program. Seeing first hand how effective this approach is, she strongly believes this same concept can be applied on the digital continent to bring us to a deeper and richer understanding of Jesus to make Him Lord of our lives.

Without repeating everything that we have already mentioned, it is appropriate first of all to emphasize the following point: for the Church, the first means of evangelization is the witness of an authentically Christian life, given over to God in a communion that nothing should destroy and at the same time given to one’s neighbor with limitless zeal. As we said recently to a group of lay people, “Modern man listens more willingly to witnesses than to teachers, and if he does listen to teachers, it is because they are witnesses.”[67] St. Peter expressed this well when he held up the example of a reverent and chaste life that wins over even without a word those who refuse to obey the word.[68] It is therefore primarily by her conduct and by her life that the Church will evangelize the world, in other words, by her living witness of fidelity to the Lord Jesus- the witness of poverty and detachment, of freedom in the face of the powers of this world, in short, the witness of sanctity.

    The problem is that the Church in our time is not chaste, but behaves like a harlot unto the scandal of many, all done in the name of “evangelization.” At Vatican II, the rebellious Spouse of Christ threw off her wedding veil and started flirting with other religions, thus instigating a spirit of rebellion in the Church, to the end that women today no longer cover their heads or obey their husbands. Rebellion has become the “new order” of the day. Christ through St. Paul commands: “Let women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted them to speak, but to be subject” (1 Corinthians 14: 34), but now women want to be on the altar to flaunt their vanity.

    Regarding Evangelli Nuntiandi, it is doubtful that it was written by the good Pope Paul VI, since an imposter reigned in the Vatican from August 1975 on. Evangelli Nuntinadi was penned four months after the double got in.ReplyCancel
