Benedict XVI
"Currently, Evangelization, which is always a pressing task, requires the Church to work even more assiduously throughout the world in order  to ensure that all mankind may come to know Christ.”

The Pontifical Missionary Works, said it will launch a global campaign that encourages Christians to pray the rosary, as a way to prepare for the coming 'Year of Faith'.

Benedict XVI then thanked the group for its work. He also said that introducing people to God is critical nowadays, especially as the world goes through economic, cultural and political changes, which can lead to a sense of helplessness and isolation. 

Benedict XVI
"Jesus, the Word incarnate, is always the center of our announcement, the point of reference for our evangelizing mission and for its methodology, because He is the human face of God, Who wishes to meet all men and women so as to bring them into communion with Him, in His love”.

During the meeting, the Pope also acknowledged the work of Msgr. Massimo Cenci, who died suddenly Friday morning. Cenci served as the undersecretary of the Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples.
