Evangelizing in a "Benedictine" Way

In his apostolic exhortation Evangelii Gaudium,
Pope Francis reminds us that we all have a daily
mandate to bring the Gospel to others.

In section 127 of that document, the Holy Father
states, “Today, as the Church seeks to experience a profound
missionary renewal, there is a kind of preaching which falls to
each of us as a daily responsibility. It has to do with bringing
the Gospel to the people we meet, whether they be our
neighbours or complete strangers.

This is the informal preaching which takes place in the middle of a conversation,
something along the lines of what a missionary does when
visiting a home. Being a disciple means being constantly ready
to bring the love of Jesus to others, and this can happen
unexpectedly and in any place: on the street, in a city square,
during work, on a journey."

In the peace of Christ and Saint Benedict,

Fr. Donald S. Raila, O.S.B.,
Director of Oblates
