New Evangelization

The Synod of Bishops which met in October about the New Evangelization stated in its concluding message, quote, “A field in which the light of the Gospel can and must shine in order to illuminate humanity’s footsteps is politics. Politics requires a commitment of selfless and sincere care for the common good by fully respecting the dignity of the human person from conception to natural end, honoring the family founded by the marriage of a man and a woman and protecting academic freedom; by removing the causes of injustice, inequality, discrimination, violence, racism, hunger and war. Christians are asked to give a clear witness to the precept of charity in the exercise of politics.” End of quote. Let’s pray that the People of God will evangelize the world of politics for the sake of human life.
