The New Evangelization needs to reach out to young people using every means available, new and old, Archbishop Jose H. Gomez of Los Angeles says.
"It is our mission to ask God for the grace to discover new means to reach out to young people," Archbishop Gomez said. "We need to use all the new means of communication so that they can understand what we are talking about."
The New Evangelization must present timeless truths in new ways, he told CNA on Oct. 18 during a break of the synod on the New Evangelization.
"Beautiful traditions, like the exposition of the Blessed Sacrament, and the time of contemplation and meditation, are very popular among young people," he noted. "So we have to go back to that, so that they can feel, too, how important … the Catholic faith is for them."
