“The question is undoubtedly a delicate one. Evangelization loses much of its force and effectiveness if it does not take into consideration the actual people to whom it is addressed, if it does not use their language, their signs and symbols, if it does not answer the questions they ask, and if it does not have an impact on their concrete life.

A must read for all Catholic who are called for a mission as an evangeliser. A relevant invitation that interpret the Second Vatican Council's documents on evangelisation and mission that resonates to our modern times.

This is a great read. This is the second time I've read this, and it was even better this time! Generally, I think this is essential reading for any pastor, catechist, or parent. Personally, I think every Baptized person needs to read it regardless of their profession.
