"Today's message of Jesus is the same, that spiritual encounter with Him is also the same. The liveliness of the Church and of a community is the same. FLASH: 00 05 43 "But we can't do it alone or even together. It's God who gets it done.”

As the New Evangelization moves forward, he says Catholics can't underestimate the value of the family and the Christian formation of children from early on. He says that powerful cycle begins in the family and in one's local parish.

"All of us who have leadership roles in the Church, so bishops, religious and the laity, we all need to have a proper formation. And for that to happen, we first need to have quality catechesis.”

When it comes to secularization in the U.S. he says the threat of religious liberty is quite real. He argues it's not the role of society to tell the laity when and where they can and can't exercise their faith.
