Excuse my ignorance but could you kindly tell me the true meaning of the word "MISSIONARY" a word that seems to be loosely misinterpreted these days especially by a certain group of people. To me, the a Missionary is one who goes out into the world and converts "NON BELIEVERS" and brings them into the Catholic/Christian faith or someone who helps brings back "Lapsed" Catholics into the faith. There are "So called Missionaries" who do not want to do the hard work of real conversion instead they ensure that they are placed into existing parishes and use "THEIR GUILE AND LIES" to attract innocent people from within the parish into their "CULT". I wonder what the Holy Father, the Archbishops and the rest of the hierarchy think of this method of conversion. These people do not want to move out their security zone or the cocoon that they are in. They do not want to do the "Hard Yards" to bring people to Christ. I would like to challenge these guys to a discussion on air or on TV so that they can really proclaim what they are all about. The ones that I refer to are from the CULT called the neo catechumenal way.
Dear Anonymous at 7:14 pm, First of all, a missionary is a person who goes out to spread the Gospel. Secondly, conversion does not necessarily mean to change one's religion. It has another meaning. It is also defined as a "change in one's heart". Finally, conversion is not only for those who are non-Christians or for the "lapsed" Catholic. It is also for the Catholics who go to daily Mass or to Sunday Mass every week. After all, a person can go to Mass every week and then go home to his live-in girlfriend/boyfriend after Mass. A Catholic can go to daily Mass and still not speak to their relatives for years because they have not paid the money they owed them, among other reasons. They do not know how to forgive. This is what I mean by the "Spirit of Jesus Christ." There are Catholics who go to Mass but do not love their neighbors, but have insulted them and even murdered them in their hearts. Just because a person goes to Mass does not mean that they are living out their faith as a Catholic. There are many Catholics who are "Catholics" in name only.
What are you talking about diana. I go to Mass daily sometimes I go twice daily.I pray 15 decades Daily Rosary.I say novenas all major saint days.I say chapter divine mercy daily 3pmI am close to God no doubt.I also carry a gun and I'm ready to shoot anyone I'm sick of NCWBest thing for NCW is to get their sorry ass out of Guam.
Dear Anonymous at 12:07 am, The fact that you carry a gun and ready to shoot anyone and hate the NCW shows that you have not lived up to those prayers. You can go to daily Mass, pray the rosaries, novenas, and divine mercy. But you are NOT close to God. If you were close to God, you would not need to carry a gun ready to shoot others. You would not hate your neighbors.
