This is something that has been on my mind, as I've been a part of several parishes and none of them have had much in the way of effective evangelization. I'm curious as to how people are actually evangelized and where the sources of evangelization are taking place in the Church today.

For my part, I was raised a Latin Catholic, fell away from faithful practice of the faith in my 20s, and eventually was led back to the sacrament of Reconciliation by the YouTube combination of Bishop Barron, Jordan Peterson, Jonathan Pageau, and Matt Fradd. Through different avenues, this group of men inspired me to put what I believed into practice, and God blessed me with a tremendous experience of grace in my first confession after years. Through this experience of finally living the faith authentically I eventually discovered that many of my prior difficulties were not with the faith itself, but with the particular emphasis of the Latin rite, and I have since become a parishioner at a beautiful Ruthenian church and felt at home immediately, both in the liturgy and in the spiritual practices of the east.
