Pope asks European bishops to promote New Evangelization
October 03, 2011
Pope Benedict XVI has urged European bishops to “identify new missionary paths to evangelization, especially in serving the new generations,” in a message to the Council of European Episcopal Conferences (CCEE), which is marking its 40th anniversary.
The CCEE devoted its plenary meeting this year to the topic of the new evangelization. The group’s president, Cardinal Peter Erdo of Budapest, remarked that the CCEE is poised to take on the challenge of the new evangelization, since the group has been largely successful in its original purpose, providing help for the Church in those areas that “suffered greatly under the dictatorship of atheist regimes.”
