New Evangelization: Metropolis Mission begins in 12 cities in Europe

Card. Peter ErdöArchbishop of Budapest (Hungary)“We have a day of penance in the cathedral where there will be confession all day. Several churches of the diocese are being organized to help young people to also take part.”Helping move this project forward is Rino Fisichella, president of the Pontifical Council for the New Evangelization. During Mission Metropolis, he will also do readings from the Gospel of St. Mark and St. Augustine?s book “The Confessions.” ; In Budapest, they?ve asked for a very special collaboration.Card. Peter ErdöArchbishop of Budapest (Hungary)“Some famous actors, cultural figures will read in the cathedral, the entire Gospel of St. Mark, which will be televised and then a celebration of Mass.”But Cardinal Erdö does not want to limit the Metropolis Mission to just Lent. He?s creating a much more ambitious plan. He believes the New Evangelization must pass through the houses of every Catholic family in Budapest.Card. Peter ErdöArchbishop of Budapest (Hungary)“We visit all the Catholic families of the diocese, it?s a huge undertaking that will last at least four years and requires the help of pastoral workers, different aides and parishes. It will be necessary to prepare many laypeople under the guidance of their pastor to visit families and increase their faith.”The Mission Metropolis will take place in 12 major cities of mainland Europe. On the list is Barcelona, Lisbon, Brussels, Dublin, Liverpool, Paris, Turin, Warsaw, Vienna and Budapest.BR/AEAMHC-MGZ
