"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.”

"For 50 years now, the magazine has given its readers information that’s related to the Church.

Also those aspects that are both  spiritual and even social actions of Christians. We intend, God willing, to continue working on the same line as long as possible.”

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.
