“Very many out there fail to become Christians simply because there is nobody available to make them Christian.”  (St. Francis Xavier)

I am amazed how many formal and informal dinner parties, fundraisers and events are continually happening here in Washington, DC.  But, how often does Christ come up in the conversations?  These people would benefit so much from a conversation in which we share our greatest treasure!  We should never impose our Faith on anyone, much less threaten them.  But we do have an obligation to respectfully present the beauty of our friendship with Christ to our family members and those within our social circles.  If we don’t, who will?
