A Primer on the New Evangelization

In Father Tom Rosica’s first keynote talk at ScriptureFest 2012, he explained what the ‘new evangelization’ actually is. If you have heard or read anything from our last three popes, you have heard this term. Pope John Paul II first used it 1986, and Popes Benedict and Francis repeatedly call for ‘a new evangelization.’ Jesus first commissioned the disciples (and therefore, all of us!) in Matthew 28:19-20 to go and make disciples of all nations. Years ago, that meant going off to foreign shores. However, the new evangelization takes place in our own backyards. What exactly does ‘new evangelization’ mean? How do we do it? Fr. Tom gives us an easy-to-understand summary that you can start to apply today.
