Holy Father
Synod Fathers
Brothers and Sisters in the Lord

You will be my witnesses” (Acts 1:8).

The Synod on the New Evangelization for the Transmission of the Christian Faith began with the celebration of the Eucharistic Liturgy in Saint Peter’s Square. Our Holy Father Paus Benedictus XVI - Homilie
Schoonheid van het Evangelie
Tijdens de opening van de 13e Bisschoppensynode Over de nieuwe evangelisatie en proclamatie tot Kerkleraar van de H. Johannes van Avila en de H. Hildegard van Bingen - Sint Pietersplein
(7 oktober 2012)
with the reminder that one of the ideas that came forth from the Second Vatican Council and that has such an important emphasis in the New Evangelization is the understanding of the universal call to holiness and how every Christian is by definition a protagonist in the work of evangelization. “One of the important ideas of the renewed impulse that the Second Vatican Council gave to evangelization is that of the universal call to holiness, which in itself concerns all Christians Vgl. 2e Vaticaans Concilie, Constitutie, Over de Kerk, Lumen Gentium (21 nov 1964), 39-42.”

The saints are evangelizers who bring the Word of God into the world through the witness of their lives. Two examples of this efficacious work of inculturation of the Gospel are St. John of Avila and Saint Hildegard of Bingen, who were declared Doctors of the Church by Pope Benedict XVI at the beginning of this synod.

As we began our deliberations in this aula, once again our Holy Father offered us Paus Benedictus XVI - Toespraak
‘God heeft gesproken. Maar hoe komt de mens dat te weten?’

. In his Paus Benedictus XVI - Toespraak
‘God heeft gesproken. Maar hoe komt de mens dat te weten?’

(8 oktober 2012)
during the opening prayer, Pope Benedict reminded us that confessio is the first of the two great pillars of evangelization. We must know and proclaim the truth of Jesus Christ. But the second of these pillars is caritas – love. It is only when we have the word inseparably lived in love that we achieve the evangelization so hoped for in this synod. “Faith has a content: God communicates himself, but this ‘I’ of God really reveals itself in the figure of Jesus and is interpreted in the ‘confession’ that speaks to us of his virginal conception at the Nativity, the Passion, the Cross, the Resurrection” Paus Benedictus XVI, Toespraak, Bij de eerste sessie van de plenaire vergadering van de Synode - In de synode-aula, ‘God heeft gesproken. Maar hoe komt de mens dat te weten?’ (8 okt 2012), 7.

Also in the October 11th celebration at which the beginning of the Jaar van het Geloof was proclaimed and the 50th anniversary of the beginning of the Council was recognized, the Holy Father indicated another important direction for our work. He said: “During the Council there was an emotional tension as we faced the common task of making the truth and beauty of the faith shine out in our time, without sacrificing it to the demands of the present or leaving it tied to the past: the eternal presence of God resounds in the faith, transcending time, yet it can only be welcomed by us in our own unrepeatable today” Paus Benedictus XVI, Homilie, Bij aanvang van het "Jaar van het Geloof" - Sint Pietersplein, Pelgrimstocht door de woestijnen van de hedendaagse wereld (11 okt 2012), 6.

For the past several weeks, we have listened attentively to the reflections on what the New Evangelization means and how the Church might best address concerns that have led to this call by our Holy Father for a New Evangelization. Thoughtful interventions on the part of the synod fathers, as well as the auditores, fraternal delegates and special guests, have enriched our sessions. The Ordo Synodi Episcoporum states that it is the task of the Relator General to produce a relatio post disceptationem that summarizes as best as possible the discussions so that the next step of the process can continue.

These following reflections are intended in some way to help the discussion in the language groups (circoli minori) as they prepare propositions to offer to the Holy Father at the conclusion of our work. With these observations I also include a number of points for development.

In this relatio, I will summarize some of the observations presented under the following headings:
1. The Nature of the New Evangelization;
2. The Context of the Church’s Ministry Today;
3. Pastoral Responses to the Circumstances of Our Day; and
4. Agents / Participants of the New Evangelization.
