This is what I was wondering. I think that is a great way to help people think about Jesus by sharing what your faith has done for you.
For some people they start explaining the system of the Church (i.e. the sacraments, Church laws, etc.) and expect that to convert people. I think for some that works, but only for those that are looking for that kind of thing.
I think to destroy the old stereotypes of Catholicism we need to talk more about what our life in faith is like – what has Jesus done for us and what do we do for him.
