Pope John Paul II distinguished three categories of people:
He found it painfully clear that many Catholics and other Christians had not been effectively incorporated into life in Christ. They were baptised as infants but had never made a personal commitment to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Then as adolescents and adults, they drift away from the Church. Evangelisation must be directed to the Church itself.
