"This celebration of Evangelium Vitae, the 'Gospel of Life', being included in the celebrations for the year of Faith demonstrates to all the world the great importance, the essential value that the Gospel of Life has in the New Evangelization, that the New Evangelization has to have this as a central pillar: that we are going to be a people who defend life, who are going to be of life and for life.”
 
'Evangelium Vitae' was John Paul II's eleventh encyclical. It is seen as a document that's highly connected to Pope Paul VI's 'Humanae Vitae'.
