Sr. Tracey Dugas was a delightful guest for this episode. She speaks clearly and with conviction, with a charity and cheerfulness that is a pleasure to listen to. I enjoyed every minute of our conversation about social media’s place in the New Evangelization, and I think you will, too.
Sr. Tracey is a Daughter of St. Paul who currently lives and works in her order’s Metairie, Louisiana location. She has been interviewed on numerous Catholic media outlets about her conversion and about her and her order’s work in using all forms of social media to “re-propose the Gospel” in today’s world.
A not-to-miss quote on the New Evangelization from this episode:
The New Evangelization calls each of us to deepen our faith, believe in the Gospel message and go forth to proclaim the Gospel. The focus of the New Evangelization calls all Catholics to be evangelized and then go forth to evangelize. In a special way, the New Evangelization is focused on “re-proposing” the Gospel to those who have experienced a crisis of faith. Pope Benedict XVI called for the re-proposing of the Gospel “to those regions awaiting the first evangelization and to those regions where the roots of Christianity are deep but who have experienced a serious crisis of faith due to secularization.” –From the United States Council of Catholic Bishops
