Here are some young Catholics to whom the label "wimp" never can be applied. They're members of Miles Jesu, an organization doing much good throughout the world. From their house in Brno in the Czech Republic comes these words from member Mark Whelan:

"We are always looking for new ways to spread the gospel. We are very active in the Czech Republic and Slovakia in evangelization. We teach a weekly Bible class is Bratislava and have two apologetic youth groups in Brno. At the local prison we give conferences on the Catholic faith, and we pass out evangelization tracts on the streets. Our whole aim is to get an educated Catholic laity, to protect them from sects and also to get them to a deeper spiritual life.

"We are being overwhelmed by the Jehovah's Witnesses, Mormons, Moonies, and, worst of all, secularism. The people and the Church here have no idea of how to cope with these problems. We are doing all we can to help. But raising funds for evangelization seems to be impossible in average Catholic circles."

Of course, Miles Jesu needs not only funds, but volunteers. It has begun a one-year mission program. Patterned after the missionary program operated by the Mormons (why not take a cue from their success?), the Miles Jesu program asks young people to donate a year of their lives to service of the Church. Expenses are paid mainly by the missionary and his family, which is the way the Mormon missionary program works.

If you or some young person you know might be interested in this outreach, contact Miles Jesu at its main house: Miles Jesu, P.O. Box 256528, Chicago, IL 60625-6528, or call (312) 769-0485.
