"we cannot forget that evangelization is first and foremost about preaching the Gospel to those who do not know Jesus Christ or who have always rejected him. Many of them are quietly seeking God, led by a yearning to see his face, even in countries of ancient Christian tradition. All of them have a right to receive the Gospel." -Pope Francis, Evangelii Gaudium #Christianity #Gospel #Evangelization #Catholic #NewEvangelization #God
“I prefer a church which is bruised, hurting and dirty because it has been out on the streets, rather than a church which is unhealthy from being confined and from clinging to its own security” -Pope Francis, Evangelii Gaudium
"An evangelizer must never look like someone who has just come back from a funeral.
"Jesus is the first and greatest evangelizer.
"Proclaiming Christ means showing that to believe in and to follow him is not only something right and true, but also something beautiful, capable of filling life with new splendour and profound joy, even in the midst of difficulties." -Pope Francis, Evangelii Gaudium. #Christianity #Christ #Evangelization
"Goodness always tends to spread.
To evangelize is to make the Kingdom of God present in our world- Pope Francis
