New Evangelisation - Resources

The following is an article by Fr Robert Barron, author of the DVD series ‘Catholicism’, ‘Why do Catholics leave’?

The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops have issued the document called ‘Disciple Called to Witness: The New Evangelisation’ which is well worth reading.

Ralph Martin a layman who has been appointed as a consultor to the Pontifical Council for the New Evangelisation wrote a thought provoking document in 2007 called ‘Faith and the New Evangelization in the Metropolis of the 21st Century’

During the Year of Faith, we were encouraged to familiarise ourselves with the teaching and documents of the Second Vatican Council.

This is well worth continuing.

The following website is very informative and has a host of resources including the open address by Pope John XXIII and the closing address by Pope Paul VI.

Evangelii Gaudium - The Joy of the Gospel
