Evangelization is simply 'sharing something good and helpful to other people,' speaker says

In the homily for the Mass to kick off the 2015-16 school year, Archbishop Robert J. Carlson quoted Pope Francis from "Evangelii Gaudium" ("The Joy of the Gospel").

"An evangelizer must never look like someone who just came from a funeral," Pope Francis wrote. "May the world of our time ... receive the good news not from evangelizers who are dejected, discouraged or anxious, but from ministers of the Gospels whose lives glow with fever, who have first received the joy of Christ."
