Handout: ‘Disciples Called to Witness’
with Lives and Words
by John Boucher
Based on Disciples Called to Witness,the USCCB document from the Committee for Evangelization and Catechesis, John Boucher offers some reflections about what makes “witness” distinctively Catholic, as he dismisses some of the stereotypes Catholics have about this word. He stresses the importance of learning to share the Word with conviction and sincerity, and reminds us that witnessing is part of the very life of a believer. He completes his reflection by offering some questions for small group or ministry sharing.
