PRISM Evangelization Concept
We accepted the Christ’s invitation to join the Church through baptism, we bears a mission to continue to expand the Kingdom of God and to spread the Good News. After the 2nd Vatican Council, the Church actively promote the position of Catholics (laity) in the history of salvation, enourage them to fulfill their mission, and cooperate with the clergy to manage the Church that was passed down by Christ. Pope Pius XII has described the laity as the church’s front line, the Church is the source of human society, they not only belong to the Church, they are the church. As the image of the vineyard said, the members of the laity and the Church are connected to God through the branches, and from Him we lives and bear fruits.
From the above, we can see laity has a certain position in the church structure. Our mission is to spread the Good News. We live in the Word of God, share the joy of God with family and friends. We need to grasp the opportunity to evangelize in our daily life. The existence of PRISM is to create this evangelization opportunity, provide a platform for Catholics to invite their friends and family to know about God through music. Please support PRISM, let PRISM be the evangelization instrument among the parishes.
Because the differences between traditional hymns and today’s pop music may be difficult for some young people to accept. Young Catholics will try to compose music was close to the taste of today’s young people, hoping it’s easier to understand the meaning in the music, and let God’s truth continuous to circulate on earth.
PRISM believes that music is a good evangelization instrument, because music and communion are complementary. One music note cannot form a piece of music, but a lot of different notes together become a harmony. PRISM cannot be a one man team. Everyone of us have different talents, but through the power of God’s love unite us into one, we continuously seek improvement to be better. Therefore, it’s more important to cultivate members in their religious faith than their music skills. We hope to nurture a high level music team, as well as continuously enhance the friendship and communion among the members. During each concert preparation, we gain a better grasp of our religious faith, and also establish a more initmate relationship with God.
If we always reunite, pray, listen, and live out the Word of God, it will increase our sense of belongings among members. We share what we know between each other, provide opportunity for non-believers to know about God, demonstrate the love of God in our group, and spread the Good news of the Gospel. Let us support and encourage each other through the community, be able to love, understand, accept each other, and spread God’s love.
