Pope Benedict emphasizes importance of evangelization

Dec 23, 2007 - 12:43 pm .- 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.
