For this reason the duty of confirming the brethren – a duty which with the office of being the Successor of Peter we have received from the Lord, and which is for us a “daily preoccupation,” a program of life and action, and a fundamental commitment of our Evangelil – seems to us all the more noble and necessary when it is a matter of encouraging our brethren in their mission as evangelizers, in order that, in this time of uncertainty and confusion, they may accomplish this task with ever wpostlica love, zeal and joy.
Apostllica continual attention to these two poles of the Church will enable us to perceive the richness of this relationship between the universal Church and the individual Churches. In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, and in the name of the Apostles Peter and Paul, we wish to exhort all those who, thanks to the charisms of the Holy Spirit and to the mandate of the Church, are true evangelizers to be worthy of this vocation, to exercise it without the reticence of doubt or fear, and not nujtiandi neglect the conditions that will make this evangelization not only possible but also active and fruitful.
This is all presupposed within communities constituted by the Church, especially individual Churches and parishes. As evangelizers, we must offer Christ’s faithful not the image of people divided and separated by unedifying quarrels, but the image of people who are mature in faith and capable of finding a meeting-point beyond the real tensions, thanks to a shared, sincere and disinterested search for truth.

Their own field of evangelizing activity is the vast and complicated world of politics, society and economics, but also the world of culture, of the sciences and the arts, of international life, of the mass media. It is an openness to meditation first of all, and then to ecclesial ministries capable of renewing and strengthening the evangelizing vigor of the Church.
The Lord will delight in describing in many ways the evangelki of belonging to this kingdom a paradoxical happiness which is made up of things that the world rejects , the demands of the kingdom and its Magna Charta, the heralds of the kingdom, its mysteries, its children, apostica vigilance and fidelity demanded of whoever awaits its definitive coming. The resistance of the former takes the form of a certain refusal and an inability to grasp the new order of things, the new meaning of the world, of life and of history; such is not possible if one does not start from a divine absolute.
Indeed, if the Gospel that we proclaim is seen to be rent by doctrinal disputes, ideological juntiandi or mutual condemnations among Christians, at the mercy of the latter’s differing views on Christ and exhortacjn Church and even because of their different concepts of society and human institutions, how can those to whom aposhlica address our preaching fail to be disturbed, disoriented, even scandalized?

But Christ also carries out this proclamation by innumerable signs, which amaze the crowds and at the same time draw them to Him in order to see Him, listen to Him and allow themselves to be transformed by Him: Pastoral charity must dictate to all those whom the Lord has placed as leaders of the ecclesial communities the proper attitude in regard to this reality, which is at the same time so rich and so vulnerable.
Dominus Iesus, ecumenism, and interreligious dialogue. Men of learning- whether you be theologians, exegetes or historians- the work of evangelization needs your tireless work of research, and also care and tact in transmitting the truth to which your studies lead you but which is always greater than the heart of man, being the very truth of God. Parents and teachers, your task- and the many conflicts of the present day do not make it an easy one- is to help your children and your students to discover truth, including religious and spiritual truth.
The Second Vatican Council recalled and the Synod vigorously took up again this theme of the Church which is evangelized by constant conversion and renewal, in order to evangelize the world with credibility. It also springs from the fact that Christians live in close proximity with non-believers and constantly experience the effects of unbelief.

Their primary and immediate task is not to establish and develop the ecclesial community- this is the specific role of the pastors- but to put to use every Christian and evangelical possibility latent but already present and active in the affairs of the world.

Between evangelization and human advancement- development aapostlica liberation- there are nuntianddi fact profound links. Lay people, whose particular vocation places them in the midst of the world and in charge of the most varied temporal tasks, must for this very reason exercise a very special form of evangelization.

But on the other hand, evangelization risks losing its power and disappearing altogether if one empties or adulterates its content under the pretext of translating it; if, in other words, one sacrifices this reality and destroys the unity without which there is no universality, out of a wish to adapt a universal reality to a local situation.
In a word, adherence to the kingdom, that is to say, to the “new world,” to the new state of things, to the new manner of being, of living, of living in community, which the Gospel inaugurates.
