MSGR. FABIO SUESCÚN MUTIS
Military Ordinary of Colombia
"We need to reach them with the message of Jesus. Military and police officers are open to God because they have very high values. Really, they need high values to be responsible in the line of duty, especially since part of their service sometimes puts their lives at risk.”

Within a secularized society, he says it's easy to give into fatigue and indifference, which can lead Christians to be pessimistic. To change this, he has been taking part in different initiatives to renew the faith in Latin America.

MSGR. FABIO SUESCÚN MUTIS
Military Ordinary of Colombia
"Since 2003, we've had a pastoral plan for the New Evangelization. The goal is to proclaim Christ and to be disciples and missionaries. To be a Christian community that can find the presence of Jesus even within Colombia's own military and police officers.”

The Colombian bishop also wants to remind Catholics that the New Evangelization isn't just about following a strategic plan, but about constantly asking the Holy Spirit for help and inspiration.
