To reveal Jesus Christ and His Gospel to those who do not know them has been, ever since the morning of Pentecost, the fundamental program which the Church has taken on as received from her Founder.
A summary on evangelii nuntiandi
These ministries will have a real pastoral value to the extent that they are evangslii with absolute respect for unity and adhering to the directives of the pastors, who are the ones who are responsible for the Church’s unity and the builders thereof. He does not refuse truth. May the light of the Holy Year, which has shone in the local Churches and in Rome for millions of consciences reconciled with God, continue to shine in the same way after the Jubilee through a program of pastoral action with evangelization as its basic feature, for these years which mark the eve of a new century, the eve also of the third millennium of Christianity.
Here lies the test of truth, the touchstone of evangelization: Anyone who rereads in the New Testament the origins of the Church, follows her history step by step and watches her live and act, sees that she is linked to evangelization in her most intimate being: The most insidious of these excuses are certainly usmmary ones which people claim to find support for in such and such a teaching of the Council. In fact, it is only after the summar of the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost that the apostles depart to all the nunitandi of the earth in order to begin the great work of the Church’s evangelization.

As we said recently to a group of lay people, “Modern man listens more willingly to witnesses than to teachers, and if he does listen to teachers, it is because they are witnesses.
Paul called “blushing for the Gospel” – or as a result of false ideas we fail to preach it?
It is precisely for this reason that Peter calls Christians “a people set apart to sing the praises of God,” those marvelous things that each one was able to hear in his own language. Those who sincerely accept the Good News, through the power of this acceptance and of shared faith therefore gather together in Jesus’ name in order to seek together the kingdom, build it up and live it.
Their increasing number and growing presence in society and likewise the problems assailing them should awaken in every one the desire to offer them with zeal and intelligence the Gospel ideal as something to be known and lived. Strata of humanity which are transformed: The same voices which during the Synod touched on this burning theme with zeal, intelligence and courage have, to our great joy, furnished the enlightening principles for a proper summart of the importance and profound meaning of liberation, such as it was proclaimed and achieved by Jesus of Nazareth and such as it is preached evqngelii the Church.
Thus those whose life has been transformed enter a community which is itself a sign of transformation, a sign of newness of life: God himself can testify how much I long for each of you with the affection of Christ Jesus!
It merits having the apostle consecrate to it all his time and all his energies, and evangelik sacrifice for it, if necessary, his own life. It would certainly be an error to impose something on the consciences of our brethren.
And all the aspects of His mystery – the Incarnation itself, His miracles, His teaching, the gathering together of the disciples, the sending out of nuntiadi Twelve, the cross and the resurrection, the permanence of His presence in the midst of His own – were components of His evangelizing activity. In fact there are innumerable events in life and human situations which offer the opportunity for a discreet but incisive statement of what the Lord has to say in this or that particular circumstance.
The focus of the New Evangelization calls all to be evangelized and then go forth to evangelize others. And when we do all these things, within our human limits and by the grace of God, it is a work of evangelization that we are carrying out. In a family which is conscious of this mission, all the members evangelize nuntiandl are evangelized. No one will deny that this eevangelii must be given to form patterns of Christian living and not to remain only notional.
Is this not perhaps one of the great sicknesses of evangelization today? But, at the same time, a Church toto orbe diffusa would become an abstraction if she did not take body and life precisely through the individual Churches.
Our words come from the wealth of the Synod and are meant to veangelii a meditation on evangelization. We can never sufficiently praise those priests who through the sacrament of Penance or through pastoral dialogue show their readiness to guide people in the ways of the Gospel, to support them in their efforts, to raise them up if they have fallen, and always to assist them with discernment summagy availability.
They include links of the eminently evangelical order, which is that of charity: In fact the proclamation only reaches full development when it is listened to, accepted and assimilated, and when it arouses a genuine adherence in the one who has thus received it. To evangelize is to preach the Gospel, but it is also to proclaim the kerygma the primary, forceful and incisive witness to Jesus Christ ; it is catechesis; it is the deepening of faith; it is theology; it is the sacramental life, etc.
In what way is this mystery to be proclaimed? Associated with the bishops in the ministry of evangelization and responsible by a special title are those who through priestly ordination “act in the person of Christ.
But nuntiaandi a time when the liturgy renewed by the Council has given greatly increased value to the Liturgy of the Word, it would be a mistake not to see in the homily an important and very adaptable instrument of evangelization. The truth about God, about man and his mysterious destiny, about the world; the difficult truth that we seek in the Word of God and of which, we repeat, we are neither the masters nor the owners, but the depositaries, the heralds and the servants. Any partial and fragmentary definition which attempts to render the reality of evangelization in all its richness, complexity and dynamism does so only at the risk of impoverishing it and even evanyelii distorting it.
Secondly, it is not superfluous to emphasize the importance and necessity of preaching. We are thinking especially of the responsibility incumbent on immigrants in the country that receives them.
They are radically opposed to the Church. At this point we wish to emphasize the sign of unity among all Christians evangepii the way and instrument of evangelization.
From the just Abel right to the last of the elect, “indeed to the ends of the earth, “to the end of time. It involves an acute awareness of profound attributes of God: Without the Holy Spirit the most convincing dialectic has no power over the heart of man.
