Church and Society

Fordham University Press

This chapter discusses the new evangelization, looking largely at the role of Pope John Paul II. The discussion looks into evangelization in history, Paul VI, John Paul II, the meaning and importance of the new evangelization, and the significance of the evangelical turn. Beginning with the Puebla conference, John Paul II has made himself the principal evangelizer in the Catholic Church. In his arduous apostolic journeys, in his annual messages for World Mission Sundays, and on many other occasions, he has continued to build on the themes articulated by Paul VI. He speaks of the evangelization of cultures and a “synthesis between faith and culture”. While insisting on the priority of eternal salvation, he maintains that human promotion is integral to the process of evangelization.

Keywords:   John Paul II, Paul VI, evangelization, Puebla conference, human promotion
