proclamation is addressed especially to those who have
never heard the Good News of Jesus, or to children. 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 from the instruction they received as
children, and for many others."

Mis-Sinodu tal-Isqfijiet 2012

Benedittu XVI flimkien ma’ 262 isqof minn madwar id-dinja
biex jiddiskutu l-evanġelizzazzjoni

Episkopali Maltija kienet rappreżentata
mill-Isqof ta’ Għawdex,
Monsinjur Mario Grech. Matul il-jiem tas-Sinodu, l-Isqof
Grech kien jibgħatilna
komunikati regolari dwar dak li kien ikun għaddej
fis-Sinodu u b’hekk aħna
l-qarrejja tal-Laikos aġġornati.

riżorsi oħra mis-Sinodu, fosthom ukoll il-messaġġ finali
tal-Isqfijiet u diskorsi mill-Papa Benedittu XVI, huma
arkivjati f’din il-paġna tal-Laikos ...
years, I have often repeated the summons to the new
evangelization. I do so again now, especially in
order to insist that we must rekindle in ourselves the
impetus of the beginnings and allow ourselves to be
filled with the ardour of the apostolic preaching which
followed Pentecost. We must revive in ourselves the
burning conviction of Paul, who cried out: 'Woe to me if
I do not preach the Gospel'."
John Paul II, Novo Millenio Inuente, 40, 6 January 2011.
"Pope John Paul II represented the Church's
missionary nature "in the flesh" with his
Apostolic Journeys and with the insistence
of his Magisterium on the urgent need for a
"new evangelization": "new" not in its
content but in its inner thrust, open to the
grace of the Holy Spirit which constitutes
the force of the new law of the Gospel that
always renews the Church; "new" in ways that
correspond with the power of the Holy Spirit
and which are suited to the times and
situations; "new" because of being necessary
even in countries that have already received
the proclamation of the Gospel."
