Our evangelization work must be motivated by a relationship of love with Jesus, an Australian bishop told a group of young English-speaking pilgrims at World Youth Day.
"We need to invite people into a relationship with Jesus Christ and allow them to discover," said Bishop D. Eugene Hurley of Darwin, Australia on July 26.
The bishop was among the English-speaking catechists at World Youth Day 2013 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Held July 24-26, the catechesis sessions allow pilgrims to be divided into smaller groups by language in order to hear a formation talk by a bishop, participate in a question-and-answer period and have the opportunity for prayer, song, Mass and confession.
