In “the interview”, Pope Francis made some negative comments about proselytism, which some people have equated with evangelization. Big mistake. As Jimmy Akin explains, the Vatican uses the term proselytism to designate forced conversions. It is not synonymous with evangelization.
No Christian can condone forced conversions.
Even Pope Benedict spoke against proselytism in Deus Caritas Est:
“Charity, furthermore, cannot be used as a means of engaging in what is nowadays considered proselytism. Love is free; it is not practised as a way of achieving other ends But this does not mean that charitable activity must somehow leave God and Christ aside. For it is always concerned with the whole man. Often the deepest cause of suffering is the very absence of God. Those who practise charity in the Church’s name will never seek to impose the Church’s faith upon others. They realize that a pure and generous love is the best witness to the God in whom we believe and by whom we are driven to love. A Christian knows when it is time to speak of God and when it is better to say nothing and to let love alone speak. He knows that God is love (cf. 1 Jn 4:8) and that God’s presence is felt at the very time when the only thing we do is to love.” (Source)
