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.
