Readers - especially Catholics - are aware of G. K. Chesterton. However, we all should equally be aware of the great Christian apologist, C. S. Lewis. We'll try to delve a bit more into this great man's life and writings during this 50th anniversary year. As a start, let us be content with celebrating this man's genius and his prophetic insight.
|C. S. Lewis|
Proposition 35 of the Synod of Bishops nails this right down:
Evangelization in the Church calls for a liturgy that lifts the hearts of men and women to God. The liturgy is not just a human action but an encounter with God which leads to contemplation and deepening friendship with God. In this sense, the liturgy of the Church is the best school of the faith.
Message to the People of God, 2012:
We, however, should never think that the new evangelization does not concern us personally. In these days voices among the Bishops were raised to recall that the Church must first of all heed the Word before she can evangelize the world. The invitation to evangelize becomes a call to conversion.
Conversion: this is the only way out from the "tsunami" of secularism.
