In Evangelii Nuntiandi Pope Paul VI described evangelization as the “deepest identity” of the Church, which “exists in order to evangelize” (EN, 14). While proposing a broad and inclusive concept, Paul VI made it clear that there can be no evangelization without proclamation of Jesus as Lord (EN, 22).

Prayer of the MonthPapal intentions for November: That priests who experience difficulties may find comfort in their suffering, support in their doubts, and confirmation in their fidelity. That as fruit of the continental mission, Latin American Churches may send missionaries to other Churches.
Papal intentions for December: That children who are victims of abandonment or violence may find the love and protection they need. That Christians, enlightened by the Word incarnate, may prepare humanity for the Savior's coming.
