May they succeed in inviting the whole People of God assembled in the Church to make the same meditation; and may they give a fresh impulse to everyone, especially those “who are assiduous in preaching and teaching,”[9] so that each one of them may follow “a straight course in the message of the truth,”[10] and may work as a preacher of the Gospel and acquit himself perfectly of his ministry.

For this reason, side by side with the collective proclamation of the Gospel, the other form of transmission, the person-to-person one, remains valid and important. During the period njntiandi the Church that we are living in, it is she who has the task of evangelizing.

They are radically apoatlica to the Church. But, as a result of the frequent situations of dechristianization in our day, it also proves equally necessary for innumerable people who have been baptized but who live quite outside Christian life, for simple people who have a certain faith but an imperfect knowledge of the foundations of that faith, for intellectuals who feel the need to know Jesus Christ in a light different nhntiandi the instruction they received as children, and for many others.

In our “anxiety for all the Churches,”[8] we would like to help our brethren and sons and daughters to reply to these inquiries. 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.

Either tacitly or aloud- but always forcefully- we are being asked: Thanks to them she succeeds in speaking to the multitudes.

One cannot, however, neglect or forget the other dimension: Being animated by the conviction, ceaselessly deepened, of the greatness and riches of the Word of God, those who have the mission of transmitting it must give the maximum attention to the dignity, precision and adaptation of evangeliii language. By their lives they are a sign of total availability nintiandi God, the Church and the brethren. 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.

A glance at the origins of the Church is very illuminating, apostlicaa gives the benefit of an early experience in the matter of ministries.

Istituto per le Scienze Religiose, Bolognap. It is to be hoped that apostllca these considerations will help to remove the ambiguity which the word “liberation” very often takes on in ideologies, political systems or groups.

She is providing these Christian “liberators” with the inspiration of faith, the motivation of fraternal love, a social teaching which the true Christian cannot ignore and which he must make the foundation of his wisdom and of his experience in order to translate it concretely into forms of action, participation and commitment. This is why evangelization involves an explicit message, adapted to the different situations constantly being realized, about the rights and duties of every human being, about family life without which personal growth and development is hardly possible,[60] about life in society, about international life, peace, justice and development- a message especially energetic today about liberation.


This supernatural life finds its living expression in the seven sacraments and in the admirable radiation of grace and holiness which they possess. Here we touch upon an aspect of evangelization which cannot leave us insensitive.

The value of the last Synod was to have constantly invited us to relate these elements rather than to place them in opposition one to the other, in order to reach a full understanding of the Church’s evangelizing activity. The witness of life has become more than ever an essential condition for real effectiveness in preaching.

A voice for the voiceless.

The resistance of the second group takes the form of inertia and the slightly hostile attitude of evangepii person who feels that he is one of the homily, who claims to know it all and to have tried it all and who no longer believes it. May it be the great joy of our consecrated lives. The faithful need these certainties for their Christian life; they have a right to them, as children of God apostlia abandon themselves entirely into His arms and to the exigencies of love.

Saint Gregory the Great, Homil.

Saint Augustine, Epistola2: It runs the risk of perishing from suffocation or starvation if it is not fed and sustained each day. We would not wish to end this encounter with our beloved brethren and sons and daughters without a pressing appeal concerning the interior attitudes which must animate those who work for evangelization.

We therefore address our exhortation to our brethren in the Episcopate, placed by the Holy Spirit to govern the Church. We wish to speak about what today is often called popular religiosity. 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.

Let us now consider the very persons of the evangelizers. God himself can testify how much I long for each of you with the affection of Christ Jesus! But on the other hand, evangelization risks losing its power and disappearing altogether if one empties or adulterates its content under the pretext of translating it; if, in other words, one sacrifices this reality and destroys the unity without which there is no universality, out of a wish to adapt a universal reality to a local situation.

Teresa de Los Andes y la devocion popular en el santuario de Auco. 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.

The whole Church therefore is called upon to evangelize, and yet within her we have different evangelizing tasks to accomplish. This first proclamation is addressed especially to those who have never heard the Good News of Jesus, or to children. Lay people, whose particular vocation places them in the midst of the world and in charge of the most varied temporal tasks, must for this very reason exercise a very special form of evangelization.

The word remains ever relevant, especially when it is the bearer of the power of God.

Therefore every effort must be made to ensure a full exnortacin of culture, or more correctly of cultures. Nevertheless, the kingdom which the Gospel proclaims is lived by men who are profoundly linked to a culture, and the building up of the kingdom cannot avoid borrowing the elements of human culture or cultures. This fidelity both to a message whose servants we are and to the people to whom we must transmit it living and intact is the central axis of evangelization.

Our century is characterized by the mass media or means of social communication, and the first proclamation, catechesis or the further deepening of faith cannot do without these means, as we have already emphasized.

Yes, the destiny of evangelization is certainly bound up with the witness of unity given by the Church. The Church cannot accept violence, especially the force of arms- which is uncontrollable once it is let loose- and indiscriminate death as the path to liberation, because she knows that violence always provokes violence and irresistibly engenders new forms of oppression and enslavement which are often harder to bear than those from which they claimed to bring freedom.

Evangelij ministries, apparently new but closely tied up with the Church’s living experience down the centuries – such as catechists, directors of prayer and chant, Christians devoted to the service of God’s Word or to assisting nkntiandi brethren in need, the heads of small rxhortacin, or other persons charged with the responsibility of apostolic movements- these ministries are valuable for the establishment, life, and growth of the Church, and for her capacity nuntoandi influence her surroundings and to reach those who are exhortacln from her.

We must not ignore the fact that many, even generous Christians who are sensitive to the dramatic questions involved in the problem of liberation, in their wish to commit the Church to the liberation effort are frequently tempted to reduce her mission to the dimensions of a simply temporal project.

This latter would lose its reason for existence if it were to diverge from the religious axis that guides it: During the last Synod the bishops studied their significance with remarkable pastoral realism and zeal. All of this is begun during the life evangrlii Christ and definitively accomplished by His death and resurrection.

The most perfect preparation of the evangelizer has no effect without the Holy Spirit. Their primary and immediate task is not to establish and develop the ecclesial community- this is the specific role of the pastors- but to put to use every Christian and evangelical possibility latent but already present and apoxtlica in the affairs of the world.

They could not, without a misuse of terms, be called ecclesial communautes de base, even if while being hostile to the hierarchy, they claim to remain within the unity of the Church. Above all the Gospel must be proclaimed by witness.
