Observations on the Synod regarding the New Evangelization
Feast of Blessed John XXIII
50th Anniversary of the Second Vatican Council
Opening of the Year of Faith
For us pastors from the United States, this fraternal gathering in Rome is a powerful reminder of how young we are! We are just “babies” in the Church, when compared to the ancient churches of Rome, the Middle East, the Eastern Rites, and Europe.
Perhaps because of our youth, we have many reasons for hope and promise as we consider the New Evangelization and the Transmission of the Faith in North America.
