Mission Metropolis: How the Vatican plans to strengthen the New Evangelization

Archbishop Rino Fisichella President, Pontifical Council for the Promotion for the New Evangelization "The interesting thing is that these 12 cities, these 12 churches, will walk together in the same period, which will be in Lent 2012. This will give Europe a sign of New Evangelization." During the 40 days of Lent, the Cathedral of each one of these cities, will once again be the center of Evangelization. Each one, will hold activities with great spiritual impact. Archbishop Rino Fisichella President, Pontifical Council for the Promotion for the New Evangelization "Very simple acts will take place such as the continued reading of the Word of God, the Gospel. Reading "The Confessions of St. Augustine," which makes reference to a man who looks for conversion. The Sacrament of Penance will also be ; present.”But before Lent 2012, the Pontifical Council for the New Evangelization is planning on hosting an international meeting on October 15th and 16th in Rome. Archbishop Rino Fisichella President, Pontifical Council for the Promotion for the New Evangelization "Representatives from many ecclesial movements in Rome will be there. We?ve invited new evangelists for the new evangelization. You can?t have a new evangelization without new evangelists. And they are many of them.... hundreds of thousands. They include young people, religious, priests from very different institutions who will be present for an experience of communion, joy, celebration and prayer. "Among the invited guests are Mother Veronica ; Berzosa, founder and superior of ; Iesu Communio of Spain. Also, Marco Bersanelli who is a scientist and writer Vittorio Messori. The meeting will bring forth important information on how to move the New Evangelization forward. It?s something that without a doubt, will be ; key in the next synod of the New Evangelization, when the bishops meet in Rome in October 2012. BR / KLHAM JMPN
