Pope Officially Ends the Synod on the New Evangelization


Today, with a pontifical mass in St. Peter’s Basilica, Pope Benedict XVI officially marked the end of the Synod on the New Evangelization. Calling on the bishops and cardinals in attendance, the pope reiterated that the Church has a responsibility to evangelize to the modern world.  He further observed that even though the New Evangelization will take on different forms in each country, that the message of Jesus will remain the same. It is just a matter of perhaps using different tools or vocabulary to promote the Gospel and to explain why it's relevant in society and in people's daily lives.

 However, the goal of the New Evangelization is to intensify the faith in countries where Christianity is losing strength, everything from not going to Mass or celebrating the Sacraments, to not passing on the faith to younger generations. Above it all, it's an initiative to fight against religious illiteracy and indifference. In a document that will soon be released, the Pope will summarize the key points and solutions that were discussed throughout the Synod that lasted for three weeks.
