The intimate life of this community – the fvangelii of listening to the Word and the apostles’ teaching, charity lived in a fraternal way, the sharing of bread[40] this intimate life only acquires its full meaning when it becomes a witness, when it evokes admiration and conversion, and when it becomes the preaching and proclamation of the Good News.

A Summary on Evangelii Nuntiandi

The Twelve and the first generation of Christians understood well the lesson of this text and other similar ones; they made them into a program of action. This diversity of services in the unity of the same mission makes up the richness and beauty of evangelization. The God of truth expects us evqngelii be the vigilant defenders and devoted preachers of truth. These include links of an anthropological order, because the man who is to be evangelized is not an abstract being but is subject to social and summmary questions.

The Church also has a lively solicitude for the Christians who are not in full communion with her. Eternal Word Television Network.

In the second section, Paul VI and the Synod of Bishops propose a definition of evangelization in contrast to all of the other possible conceptions of the term.

It is much more than that of a teacher; it is the love of a father; and again, it is the love of a mother. Knowing that the Gospel sumnary is not reserved to a small group of the initiated, the privileged or the elect, but is destined for everyone, she shares Christ’s anguish at the sight of the wandering and exhausted crowds, “like sheep without a shepherd” and she often repeats His words: This first proclamation is also addressed to the immense sections of mankind who practice non-Christian evanyelii.


No one will deny that this instruction must be given to form patterns of Christian living and not to remain only notional. We are also aware that many psychologists and sociologists express the view that modern man has passed beyond the civilization of the word, which is now ineffective and useless, and that today he lives in the civilization of the image.

We encourage the openness which the Church is showing today in this direction and with this solicitude. To live the sacraments in this way, bringing their celebration to a true fullness, is not, as some would claim, to impede or to accept a distortion of evangelization: She exists in order to evangelize, that is to say, in order to preach and teach, to be the channel of the gift of grace, to reconcile sinners with God, and to perpetuate Christ’s sacrifice in the Mass, which is the memorial of His death and glorious resurrection.

Such attention is indispensable and urgent. It is certainly not easy to express in a complete synthesis the meaning, the content and the modes of evangelization as Jesus conceived it and put it into practice. May it mean for us- as it did for John the Baptist, for Peter and Paul, for the other apostles and for a multitude of splendid evangelizers all through the Church’s history- an interior enthusiasm that nobody and nothing can quench.

She remains as a sign – simultaneously obscure and luminous – of a new presence of Jesus, of His departure and of His permanent presence. They are teachers of the faith.

I hold all of you dear- you who Evangelization will also always contain – as the foundation, center, and at the same time, summit of its dynamism – a clear proclamation that, in Jesus Christ, the Son of God made man, who died and rose from the dead, salvation is offered to all men, as a gift of God’s grace and mercy. They are gathering about Him; they want sjmmary let themselves be led by Him.

Why do they live in this way? The Successor of Peter is thus, by the will of Christ, entrusted with the preeminent ministry of teaching the revealed truth.

Summart is the desire that we rejoice to evabgelii to evangdlii hands and the heart of the Immaculate Blessed Virgin Mary, on this day which is especially consecrated to her and which is also the tenth anniversary of the close of the Second Vatican Council. In this perspective one perceives the role played in evangelization by religious men and women consecrated to prayer, silence, penance and sacrifice.


The drama of fidelity to Christ and of the freedom of religion continues, even if it is disguised by categorical declarations in favor of the rights of the person and of life in society!

Any approach to dialogue such as coercion or improper enticement that fails to respect the dignity and religious freedom of the partners in that dialogue has no place in Christian simmary.
