Pope Benedict XVI inaugurated the “Pontifical Council for Promotion of the New Evangelization” in 2010. This October the world synod of Bishops will discuss “The New Evangelization for the Transmission of the Christian Faith.” In examining the documents related to the Synod one finds the call to Evangelization which reminds us that each of us is to evangelize by our lives and actions to bring people to Christ and new life in him.
St. Vincent de Paul told his followers that the service they rendered to those who are poor was to go hand in hand with bringing them to know the Gospel.
Let us reflect on some of the words of the Synod documents along with the words of St. Vincent de Paul to help us realize that, “Every person is called to conversion and to faith in God’s merciful love.” (Synod of Bishops, The New Evangelization for the Transmission of the Christian Faith, Instrumentum Laboris, #24)
