The New Evangelization
Not all of us may feel competent to become missionaries, but every Catholic can participate in the new evangelization by the testimony of his own life and that of his family. In fact, the lay faithful are called to play a central role in the new evangelization. This was Pope Benedict’s message when he met recently with members of the Pontifical Council for the Family. On that occasion, he observed that “the new evangelization depends largely on the domestic church” and that “the new evangelization is inseparable from the Christian family.” He repeated his call that Catholic married couples should “evangelize with their witness of life” and urged them to assist priests in their pastoral activities. The pope concluded by saying that the Catholic family is “the closest ally of the priestly ministry.” To further our understanding of the family’s privileged place in the pastoral mission of the Church, the Knights of Columbus has, for more than two decades, sponsored the work of the Pontifical John Paul II Institute for Studies on Marriage and Family, which is now located at The Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C. Today, hundreds of institute graduates are working to advance the pastoral and teaching mission of the Church throughout North America. - Supreme Knight Carl A. Anderson in A Renewal of Faith, 1-31-12
