Pope Benedict emphasizes importance of evangelization

.- Today the Holy Father addressed the faithful in his final Sunday Angelus before Christmas asking that their hearts be opened to welcome Jesus and encouraged them to share the “Good News.”

The Pope emphasized that many people don’t realize the importance of their faith, making evangelization imperative. 

In reference to the recent document, “A Doctrinal Note on Some Aspects of Evangelization” released by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, the Holy Father reminded his audience that Truth can propel one to announce God’s presence.  

The AP reports that the Pope stated, “The document serves as a reminder to all Christians, in a situation in which it is often not clear to many faithful themselves the reason for evangelizing, that accepting the Gospel pushes one to communicate the gift of salvation."

The Pope also pledged his support to the staff of the Vatican Newspaper, L'Osservatore Romano for their humanitarian efforts to help the children of Uganda.
