EDUQUER, CHEMIN D'EVANGELISATION - EDUCAR, CAMINO DE EVANGELIZACIÓN - EDUCATION, A WAY TO EVANGELIZATION

The General Council which held its October session in Rome resumed the orientations of the  General Chapter: "education, way of evangelization." We invite you all during this YEAR OF FAITH to find ways and means to live your faith, to know it better, to proclaim and celebrate it, not alone, but with others, especially with young people.
The Bishops assembled in Synod received a letter, dated October 20, written by the youth of the School of Evangelization of the Community of Emmanuel in Rome. It can be read on the site www.zenit.org

Christians should show a new confidence in the truth of the Gospel message, and "exceed the embarrassment syndrome” to announce "the simple, natural and tangible treasure of the friendship…
