"This first 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."

Evangelii Nuntiandi, 52.

Mis-Sinodu tal-Isqfijiet 2012

F’Ottubru 2012 il-Papa Benedittu XVI flimkien ma’ 262 isqof minn madwar id-dinja kollha, iltaqgħu f’Sinodu Ġenerali biex jiddiskutu l-evanġelizzazzjoni ġdida għat-tixrid tal-fidi.

F’dan is-Sinodu il-Konferenza 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 stajna nżommu l-qarrejja tal-Laikos aġġornati.

Dawn il-komunikati flimkien ma’ bosta 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 ...





(New Evangelization)

"Over the 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."

Pope Benedicy XVI, Homily 28 June 2010. ...>
