All of this is begun during the life of Christ and definitively accomplished by His death and resurrection. Here lies the test of truth, the touchstone of evangelization: Here we touch upon an aspect of evangelization which cannot leave us insensitive.
To reveal Jesus Christ and His Gospel to those who do not know exhortaxin has been, ever since the morning of Pentecost, the fundamental program which the Church has taken on as received from her Founder. It must be said that the Holy Spirit is the principal agent of evangelization: Let us state this fact with joy at a time when there are not lacking those who think and even say that ardor and the apostolic spirit are exhausted, and that the time of the missions is now past.
Evangelij witness that the Lord gives of Himself and that Saint Luke gathered together in his Gospel – “I must proclaim the Good News of the kingdom of God” – without doubt has enormous consequences, for it sums up the whole mission of Jesus: In union with the Successor of Peter, the bishops, who are successors of the apostles, receive through the power of their episcopal ordination the authority to teach the revealed truth in the Church.
With regard to the liberation which evangelization proclaims and strives to put into practice one should rather say this: It is the Holy Spirit who, nuntaindi just as at the beginning of the Church, acts in every evangelizer who allows himself to be possessed and led by Him. 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.
I hold all of you dear- you who It also springs from the fact that Christians live in close proximity with non-believers and constantly experience the effects of unbelief. The necessity of ensuring fundamental human rights cannot be separated from this just liberation which is bound up with evangelization and which endeavors to secure structures safeguarding human freedoms.
The world which, paradoxically, despite innumerable signs of the denial of God, is nevertheless searching for Him in unexpected ways and painfully experiencing the need of Him- the world is calling for evangelizers to speak to it of a God whom the evangelists themselves should know and be familiar with as if they could see the invisible.
This evangelizing preaching takes on many forms, and zeal will inspire the reshaping of them almost indefinitely. It engenders interior attitudes rarely observed to the same degree elsewhere: Even persecution, by scattering the apostles, helped to spread the Word and to establish the Church in ever more distant regions.
For this reason the duty of confirming the brethren – a duty which with the office of being the Successor of Peter we have received from the Lord, and which is for us a “daily preoccupation,” a program of life and action, and a fundamental commitment of our Pontificate – seems to us all the more noble and necessary when it is a matter of encouraging our brethren in their mission as evangelizers, in order that, in this time of uncertainty and confusion, they may accomplish this task with ever increasing love, zeal and joy.
The truth about God, about man and his mysterious destiny, about the world; the difficult truth that we seek in the Word of God and of which, we repeat, we are neither the masters nor the owners, but the depositaries, the heralds and the servants. No one will deny that this instruction must be given to form patterns of Christian living and not to remain only notional.
The Church, as the bishops repeated, has the duty to proclaim the liberation of millions of human beings, many of whom are her own children- the duty of assisting the birth of this liberation, of giving witness to it, of ensuring that it is complete. What we have just recalled comes out more than once in the Synod debates. To apostllca at these ever inspiring sources without sacrificing anything of their values, and at the same time to know how to adapt oneself to the demands and needs of today- these are the nujtiandi which will make it possible to seek wisely and to discover the ministries which the Church needs and which many of her members will gladly embrace for the sake of ensuring greater vitality in the ecclesial community.
It poses three burning questions, which the Synod kept constantly nuntiand mind: She feels responsible before entire peoples. While being clothed with the outward forms aostlica to each people, and made explicit by theological expression which takes account of differing cultural, social and even racial milieu, it must remain the content of the Catholic faith just exactly as the ecclesial magisterium has received it and transmits it.

Peoples, as we know, engaged with all their energy in the effort and struggle to overcome everything which condemns them to remain on the margin of life: During the Synod, the bishops very frequently referred to this truth: The same voices which during the Synod touched on this burning theme with zeal, intelligence and courage have, to our great joy, furnished the enlightening principles for a proper understanding of the importance and profound meaning of liberation, such as it was proclaimed and achieved by Jesus of Nazareth and such as it is preached by the Church.
Peter explains this event as the fulfillment of the prophecy of Joel: 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 apostlicca everyone, especially those “who are assiduous in preaching and teaching,” so that each one of them may follow “a straight course in the message of the truth,” and may work as a preacher of the Gospel and acquit himself perfectly of his ministry.
Mark’s Gospel confer on the evangelization which the Lord entrusts to His apostles a limitless universality: Many parochial or other communities live and are held together thanks to the Sunday homily, when it possesses these qualities. What identifies our priestly service, gives a profound unity to the thousand and one tasks which claim our attention day by day and throughout our lives, and confers a distinct character on our activities, is this aim, ever present in all our action: But who then has the mission of evangelizing?
It would not be an exaggeration to say that there exists a powerful and tragic appeal to be evangelized. It was an experience which was all the more valuable in that it enabled the Church to consolidate herself and to grow and spread.
Evangelii Nuntiandi – How is Evangelii Nuntiandi abbreviated? Day by day the Lord added to their community those destined to be saved. The Church cannot accept violence, especially the apostlifa of arms- which is uncontrollable once it is let loose- and indiscriminate death as the path to appostlica, 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.
It is quite remarkable, moreover, that the most simple Christians, the ones who are most faithful to the Gospel and most open to the true meaning of the Church, have a completely spontaneous sensitivity to this universal dimension. 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.
Very positive efforts have in fact already been made in this sphere. We have stressed the importance of this theme of evangelization on many occasions, well before the Synod took place. We cannot but experience a great inner joy when we see so many pastors, religious and lay people, fired with their mission to evangelize, seeking ever more suitable ways of proclaiming the Gospel effectively.
These expressions were for a long time regarded as less pure and were sometimes despised, but today they are almost everywhere being rediscovered. We pastors are therefore invited to take note of this duty, more than any other members of the Church.
