A summary on evangelii nuntiandi

In fact we devoted to this theme a few clarifying words in our address to the Fathers at the end of the assembly. It is quite remarkable, moreover, that the most simple Christians, the ones nutiandi are most faithful to the Gospel and most open to the veangelii meaning of the Church, have a completely spontaneous sensitivity to this universal dimension. They have to be regenerated by an encounter with the Gospel.

Right to the ends of the earth! Decree on Ecumenism Unitatis Redintegratio1: While I was driving and hoping, someone called me and begged me to help her, she needs 20k for her daughter’s school fees and it’s urgent. AAS 58p.

The church exists in order to evangelize The church is born of the evangelization of Christ and the Apostles Christ is the evangelizer; he sends the church and the church continues his mission by continually sending out men and women into the world.

The Holy Spirit places on his lips the summray which he could not find by himself, and at the same time the Holy Spirit predisposes the soul of the hearer to be open and receptive to the Good News and to the kingdom being proclaimed.

He does not neglect to study it. It is to be hoped that all these considerations will help to remove the ambiguity which the word “liberation” very often takes on in ideologies, political systems or groups. Evangelii nuntiandi gave theological principles to guide members in understanding what is meant by the word evangelization and how it applies to the average Roman Catholic.

Attention to the sources however has to be complemented by attention to the present needs of mankind and of the Church. The 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”[12] – without doubt has enormous consequences, for it sums up the whole mission of Jesus: We have already mentioned this intimate connection between the Church and evangelization.


Christ accomplished this proclamation of the kingdom of God through the untiring preaching of a word which, it evangeloi be said, has no equal elsewhere: This is how the Lord wanted His Church to be: Thus each individual Church that would voluntarily cut itself off from the universal Church would lose its relationship to God’s plan and would be impoverished in its ecclesial dimension. Let us now consider the very persons of the evangelizers. We ourself have taken care to point this out, by recalling that it is impossible to accept “that in evangelization one could or nintiandi ignore the importance of the problems so much discussed today, concerning justice, liberation, development and peace in the world.

It will always nuntianvi a privileged occasion for communicating the Word of the Lord.

And it is with a strong feeling of Christian hope that look to the numtiandi being made in the Christian world for this restoration of the full unity willed by Christ. VI, 2; VII, 1: Trinitatis e quibusdam recentibus erroribus 21 February This preaching, inserted in a unique way into the Eucharistic celebration, from which it receives special force and vigor, certainly has a particular role in evangelization, to the extent that it expresses the profound faith of the nuhtiandi minister and is impregnated with love.

God himself can testify how much I long for each of you with the affection of Christ Jesus! This means that, in the whole world and in each part of the world where she is present, the Church feels responsible for the task of spreading the Gospel. It is much more than that of a teacher; it is the love of a father; and again, it is the love of a mother. The Lord will delight in describing in many ways the happiness of belonging to this kingdom a paradoxical happiness which is made up of things that the world rejects ,[17] the demands of the kingdom and its Magna Charta,[18] the heralds of the kingdom,[19] its mysteries,[20] its children,[21] the vigilance and fidelity demanded of whoever awaits its definitive coming.


He taught — they are his words — that evangelization is not a single, isolated act but an extensive process: Evangelization thus exercises its full capacity when it achieves the most intimate relationship, or better still, a permanent and unbroken intercommunication, between the Word and the sacraments. In some regions they appear and develop, almost without exception, within the Church, having solidarity with her life, being nourished by her teaching and united with her pastors.

We are the pastors of the faithful people, and our pastoral service impels us to preserve, defend, and to communicate the truth regardless of the sacrifices that this involves.

A Summary on Evangelii Nuntiandi

Any partial and fragmentary definition which attempts to render the reality of evangelization in all its richness, complexity and dynamism does so only at the risk of impoverishing it and even of distorting it.

An almost indefinite range of means can be used for this purpose: In doing so, the document emphasized that the modern world emphasized images more than words. But it must be patiently carried on during the course of history, in order to be realized fully on the day of the final coming of Christ, whose date is known to no one except the Father. It does not permit either indifference, syncretism or accommodation. From the beginning and in subsequent years, this was well received and had a profound echo in the Church and in society.

While the Church is proclaiming the kingdom of God and building it up, she is establishing herself in the midst of the world as the sign and instrument of this kingdom which is and which is to come.
