From now until the end of October, we pray for the success of the Synod of Bishops taking place in Rome and discussing the new evangelization. The worldwide culture of death, visible at its worst in the abortion holocaust, is a sign that new evangelization is needed. when people forget God, they also forget the meaning of creation, including the gift of human life. Basic realities, such as birth and death, lose their Christian meaning and lead people to despair. New evangelization, instead, proclaims that Christ will raise us up to sit on his throne. To proclaim this hope effectively, the Church has to give renewed effort to stopping the killing of children in the womb. Despair leads to abortion. New evangelization leads to new hope. And hope leads us to say “Yes” to life!
