In still other cases they bring Christians together in places where the shortage of priests does not favor the normal life of a parish community. 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.

It is certainly not easy to express evagnelii a complete synthesis the meaning, the content and the modes of evangelization as Jesus conceived it and put it into practice. The Gospel, and therefore evangelization, are certainly not identical with culture, and they are independent in regard to all cultures.

The Church considers it to be undoubtedly important to build up structures which are more human, apoztlica just, more respectful of the rights of the person and less oppressive and less enslaving, but she is conscious that the apoxtlica structures and the most idealized apostlcia soon become inhuman if the inhuman inclinations of the human heart are not made wholesome, if those who live in these structures or who rule them do not undergo a conversion of heart and of outlook.

The most perfect preparation of the evangelizer has no effect without the Holy Spirit. Saint Augustine, Enarratio in Ps She did this once more at the last Synod, as an appeal not to imprison the proclamation of the Gospel by limiting it to one sector of mankind or to one class of people or to a single type of civilization. Above all the Gospel must be proclaimed by witness. It is the Holy Spirit who, today just as at exhortacon beginning of the Church, acts in every evangelizer who allows himself to be possessed and evanglii by Him.

In a family which is conscious of this mission, all the members evangelize and are evangelized. But it is fully evangelizing in manifesting the fact that for man the Creator is not an anonymous and remote power; He is the Father: Such preparation is all the more necessary for those who devote themselves to the ministry of the Word.

Conciliorum Oecumenicorum Decretaed. The preaching likewise – and this is always urgent – of the search for God Himself through prayer which is principally that of adoration and thanksgiving, but also through communion with the visible sign of the encounter with God which is the Church of Jesus Christ; and this communion in its turn is expressed by the application of those other signs of Christ living and acting in the Church which are the sacraments.


It is He who explains to the faithful the deep meaning of the teaching of Jesus and of His mystery. The second sphere is that of those who do not practice.

In a certain sense it is a mistake to make a contrast between evangelization and sacramentalization, as is sometimes done.

Paul VI Apostolic Exhortations. On us particularly, the pastors of the Church, rests the responsibility for reshaping with boldness and wisdom, but in complete fidelity to the content of evangelization, the means that are most suitable and effective for communicating the Gospel message to the men and women of our times. The Council repeats the following expression of St.

It is not by chance that the great inauguration of evangelization took place on the morning of Pentecost, under the inspiration of the Spirit. Mark’s Gospel confer on the evangelization which the Lord entrusts to His apostles a limitless universality: The first sphere is the one which can be called the increase of unbelief in the modern world. And may the world of our time, which is searching, sometimes with anguish, sometimes with hope, be enabled to receive the Good News not from evangelizers who are dejected, discouraged, impatient or anxious, but from ministers of the Gospel whose lives glow with fervor, who have first received the joy of Christ, and who are willing to risk their lives so that the kingdom may be proclaimed and the Church established in the midst of the world.

We therefore address our exhortation to our brethren in the Episcopate, placed by the Holy Spirit to govern the Church.

Evangelii Nuntiandi

PL 4, ; Saint Augustine, Enarrat. Nuntiandl being clothed with the outward forms proper to each people, and made explicit by theological expression which takes account of differing cultural, social and even racial milieu, it must remain the nuntuandi of the Catholic faith just exactly as the ecclesial magisterium has received it and transmits it.

These latter communities will be a place of evangelization, for the benefit of the bigger communities, especially the individual Churches. At the deepest level of their being they are caught Up in the dynamism of the Church’s life, which is thirsty for the divine Absolute and called to holiness.

Parents and teachers, your task- and the many conflicts of the present day do not make it an easy one- is to help your children and your students to discover truth, including religious and spiritual truth. She is the normal, desired, most immediate and most visible fruit of this activity: He does not obscure revealed evanglii by being too idle to search for it, or for the sake of his own comfort, or out of fear.

Through this wordless witness these Christians stir up irresistible questions in the hearts of those who a;ostlica how they live: The God of truth expects us to be the vigilant defenders and exhortaciin preachers of truth. And the Twelve in their turn sent out their successors who, in the apostolic line, continue to preach the Good News.


Truly the effort for evangelization will profit greatly- at the level of catechetical instruction given at exuortacin, in the schools, where this is possible, and in every case in Christian homes- if those giving catechetical instruction have suitable texts, updated with wisdom and competence, under the authority of the bishops.

Evangelii Nuntiandi (December 8, ) | Paul VI

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. In the name of Christ we bless you, your communities, your families, all those who are dear to you, in the words which Paul addressed to the Philippians: Pastoral charity must dictate to all those whom the Lord has placed as leaders of the ecclesial communities the proper attitude in regard to this reality, which is at the same time so rich and so vulnerable.

And He has commanded us to transmit this revelation to others with His own authority. In a word, adherence to the kingdom, that is to say, to the “new world,” to the new state of things, to the new manner of being, of living, of living in community, which the Gospel inaugurates. There is thus a profound link between Christ, the Church and evangelization.

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. These expressions were for a long time regarded as less pure and were sometimes despised, but today they are almost everywhere being rediscovered.

A glance at the origins of the Church is very illuminating, and gives the benefit of an early experience in the matter of ministries. But it must be patiently carried on during the course of history, in order to be realized fully on the day of the final coming of Christ, whose date is known to no one except the Father. The resistance of the former takes the form of a certain refusal and an inability to grasp the evnagelii order of things, the new meaning of the world, of life and of history; such is not possible if one does not start from a divine absolute.

And, as we said at the end of the last Synod, they will be a hope for the universal Church to the extent:. In fact they are complementary and mutually enriching.
