Pope: " Secularized Nations Can Return to Christ;" Addresses Evangelizers Promoting Evangelization

The Catholic News Agency website reports that today (October 16, 2011) Pope Benedict XVI told over 8,000 Catholics -- who are involved in the "new evangelization" -- that he has every confidence they can return their respective nations to Christ.

"Seeing all of you and knowing the hard work that everyone of you places at the service of the mission, I am convinced that the new evangelists will multiply more and more to create the true transformation which the world of today needs," the Pope said in the Vatican's Paul VI Audience Hall.

The Pope was addressing a conference entitled "New Evangelizers for the New Evangelization -- The Word of God Grows and Spreads," organized by the Pontifical Council for Promoting the New Evangelization.

The council is charged with spearheading the re-evangelization of traditionally Christian countries that have been particularly affected by secularization in recent decades.
