He said it's not because they're in denial or because they don't recognize the challenges of the Church. Instead it's because they have hope and faith that the New Evangelization can be carried out.

On Sunday, Benedict XVI will officially close the Synod on the New Evangelization with a Mass in St. Peter's Square. He will then begin to write a document that summarizes all the main points and conclusions of the Synod.
