Evangelization has formed the Christian culture that identifies our people, says Ecuadorian bishop

.- During morning Mass at the 5th General Conference of the Latin American Bishops’ Conference in Aparecida, the president of the Bishops’ Conference of Ecuador, Bishop Nestor Herrera, said evangelization “has formed the Christian culture that identifies our people of Latin America and the Caribbean.”

“We need to find new ways to make the faith and daily life consistent, in order to incarnate in believers the life that comes from Baptism,” Bishop Herrera said.

“We cannot hide our peoples’ lack of education in the faith,” he continued. “Now we need to provide concrete and clear guidance for the evangelization and ministry of our particular churches.”  “The words of Jesus comfort us: Have courage, I have overcome the world,” the bishop added.

He expressed hope that the example of those who first brought the gospel to the new world, the example of the saints, and of the Blessed Mother, would “encourage us in our pastoral ministry and fill us with enthusiasm for the new evangelization to which we are called.”
