Evangelization

According to Pope Paul VI, in his Apostolic Exhortation, Evangelii Nuntiandi (On Evangelization in the Modern World): For the church, evangelizing means bringing the Good News into all the strata of humanity and through its influence transforming humanity from within and making it new… The purpose of evangelization is therefore precisely this interior change, and if it had to be expressed in one sentence, the best way of it would be to say that the church evangelizes when she seeks to convert, solely through the divine power of the message she proclaims, both the personal and the collective consciences of people, the activities in which they engage and the lives and concrete milieu which are their (no.18)

Furthermore, Pope Paul VI teaches that: The tack of evangelizing all people constitutes the essential mission of the church… she exists in order to evangelize (no.14). In addition, the pope says: The whole church is missionary and the work of evangelization is a basic duty of the people of God (no.59).
