"There's a growing hunger amongst faithful Catholics of how exactly do we collaborate with the New Evangelization," he said.
Sister Theresa Slota, who is superior general of the Sisters Servants of Mary Immaculate, a religious order of Eastern rite Catholics founded in Ukraine, also shared what she will take away from the congress.
"After being at this conference, the one thing I can do is share with our people about Our Lady of Guadalupe," she said. "We have many Madonnas in Ukraine, and we love the Madonna very much, but this is a special gift that I have received these days to be here."
"The thing that's most important, especially with evangelization, is how we as women carry Christ in us, and how to bring that more and more to our people and the people we meet every day. And that is what I would like not only for myself to do, but for each of our sisters all over the world."
Archbishop Lori also reflected on the battle which the Church is engaged in, particularly in the U.S.
"We are preaching the Gospel to a culture marked by hardened secularity … willing to debase human life … and an overarching indifference among people."
"We're in mission territory, let's face it, and the New Evangelization is about taking up the mission of the Church that began at Pentecost, with renewed vitality and love," he stated.
"Love diffuses itself, and the love we bear is stronger than sin and more powerful than death."
