"It would be difficult to transmit the message of the Gospel if it’s not part of my life. The Gospel is not only information. It can’t be sold as just another book, without any special attention to the specifics and what the Gospel truly means.”

Director, 'Palabra Magazine'

The Synod on the New Evangelization will be held at the Vatican from October 7th to the 28th. Bishops from all over the world will be there, and more than likely they’ll come across this map.
