Pope John Paul II: Mission Ad Gentes: 3 Situations for Evangelization

In section 33 of this encyclical, Redemptoris Missio,  Blessed Pope John Paul II describes three different situations for evangelization: mission ad gentes, Christian communities, and the new evangelization.

Mission ad gentes: Latin for “to the nations.” This is a situation where “Christ and his Gospel are not known.”

Christian communities: “In these communities the Church carries out her activity and pastoral care.” This is the ongoing evangelization of those “fervent in the faith.”

New Evangelization: “A situation between the first two options “where entire groups of the baptized have lost a living sense of the faith, or even no longer consider themselves members of the Church, and live a life far removed from Christ and His Gospel. In this case what is needed is a “new evangelization” or a ‘re-evangelization.”

Pope John Paul II “new evangelization” pertains to a very specific group of people: fallen-away Christians. For most Catholics in the western world, we see the need for this type of evangelization all around us. Everyone knows someone who was once baptized but who no longer practices the faith. Blessed John Paul II wanted the faithful to clearly recognize this problem and then try to solve it.

Act Of Entrustment Of The Destiny Of The World To The Divine Mercy

O God, merciful Father,
Who have revealed your love in your Son,
Jesus Christ, and have poured it out upon us
in the Holy Spirit, the Comforter.
We entrust to You today the destiny of the world
and of every man and woman.
Bend down to us sinners,
heal our weaknesses,
conquer all evil,
and grant that all the inhabitants
of the earth may experience Your mercy.
May they always find the source of hope In You,
the Triune God.
Eternal Father,
for the sake of the sorrowful Passion,
and the Resurrection of Your Son,
have mercy on us and on the whole world. Amen

- Pope John Paul II

Jesus Call Us To Evangelize - He advises Christians that this is not going to be an easy task

"Start off now, but look, I am sending you out like lambs among wolves. Take no purse with you, no haversack, no sandals. Salute no one on the road. Take no purse with you, no haversack, no sandals. Whatever house you enter, let your first words be, "Peace to this house!" And if a man of peace lives there, your peace will go and rest on him; if not, it will come back to you. Stay in the same house, taking what food and drink they have to offer, for the labourer deserves his wages; do not move from house to house. Whenever you go into a town where they make you welcome, eat what is put before you. Cure those in it who are sick, and say, "The kingdom of God is very near to you." But whenever you enter a town and they do not make you welcome, go out into its streets and say. We wipe off the very dust of your town that clings to our feet, and leave it with you. Yet be sure of this: the kingdom of God is very near." (Luke 10:3-11)

And He said to them: Go ye into the whole world, and preach the gospel to every creature. (Mark 16:15)

And a man's enemies shall be they of his own household. He that loveth father or mother more than me, is not worthy of me; and he that loveth son or daughter more than me, is not worthy of me. And he that taketh not up his cross, and followeth me, is not worthy of me. He that findeth his life, shall lose it: and he that shall lose his life for me, shall find it. He that receiveth you, receiveth me: and he that receiveth me, receiveth him that sent me. He that receiveth a prophet in the name of a prophet, shall receive the reward of a prophet: and he that receiveth a just man in the name of a just man, shall receive the reward of a just man. And whosoever shall give to drink to one of these little ones a cup of cold water only in the name of a disciple, amen I say to you, he shall not lose his reward. (Matthew 10:37-42)

But because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold, nor hot, I will begin to vomit thee out of my mouth. Because thou sayest: I am rich, and made wealthy, and have need of nothing: and knowest not, that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked. I counsel thee to buy of me gold fire tried, that thou mayest be made rich; and mayest be clothed in white garments, and that the shame of thy nakedness may not appear; and anoint thy eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.  Such as I love, I rebuke and chastise. Be zealous therefore, and do penance.  Behold, I stand at the gate, and knock. If any man shall hear my voice, and open to me the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. (The Apocalypse of St John (Revelation 3:16-20)

And I say to you, Whosoever shall confess me before men, him shall the Son of man also confess before the angels of God. (Luke 12:8)

Going therefore, teach ye all nations; baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and behold I am with you all days, even to the consummation of the world.(Matthew 28:19-20)

And when they shall bring you into the synagogues, and to magistrates and powers, be not solicitous how or what you shall answer, or what you shall say; For the Holy Ghost shall teach you in the same hour what you must say. (Luke 12:11-12)

The Lord delayeth not his promise, as some imagine, but dealeth patiently for your sake, not willing that any should perish, but that all should return to penance.( 2 Peter 3:9)

Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner: but labour with the gospel, according to the power of God Who hath delivered us and called us by his holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the times of the world. (2 Timothy 1:8-9)

Knowing, brethren beloved of God, your election: For our gospel hath not been unto you in word only, but in power also, and in the Holy Ghost, and in much fullness, as you know what manner of men we have been among you for your sakes. (1 Thessalonians 1:4–5)

In this is my Father glorified; that you bring forth very much fruit, and become my disciples.( John 15:8)

For God so loved the world, as to give his only begotten Son; that whosoever believeth in him, may not perish, but may have life everlasting. For God sent not his Son into the world, to judge the world, but that the world may be saved by him. (John 3:16-17)

My brethren, if any of you err from the truth, and one convert him: He must know that he who causeth a sinner to be converted from the error of his way, shall save his soul from death, and shall cover a multitude of sins. (James 5:19-20)

These things I command you, that you love one another. If the world hate you, know ye, that it hath hated me before you.  If you had been of the world, the world would love its own: but because you are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. Remember my word that I said to you: The servant is not greater than his master. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you: if they have kept my word, they will keep yours also. But all these things they will do to you for my name's sake: because they know not him who sent me. If I had not come, and spoken to them, they would not have sin; but now they have no excuse for their sin. He that hateth me, hateth my Father also. If I had not done among them the works that no other man hath done, they would not have sin; but now they have both seen and hated both me and my Father.  But that the word may be fulfilled which is written in their law: They hated me without cause. (John 15:18-25)

And when the Son of man shall come in his majesty, and all the angels with him, then shall he sit upon the seat of his majesty. And all nations shall be gathered together before him, and he shall separate them one from another, as the shepherd separateth the sheep from the goats:  And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on his left. Then shall the king say to them that shall be on his right hand: Come, ye blessed of my Father, possess you the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was hungry, and you gave me to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave me to drink; I was a stranger, and you took me in: Naked, and you covered me: sick, and you visited me: I was in prison, and you came to me.  Then shall the just answer him, saying: Lord, when did we see thee hungry, and fed thee; thirsty, and gave thee drink? And when did we see thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and covered thee?  Or when did we see thee sick or in prison, and came to thee?  And the king answering, shall say to them: Amen I say to you, as long as you did it to one of these my least brethren, you did it to me. Then he shall say to them also that shall be on his left hand: Depart from me, you cursed, into everlasting fire which was prepared for the devil and his angels. For I was hungry, and you gave me not to eat: I was thirsty, and you gave me not to drink. I was a stranger, and you took me not in: naked, and you covered me not: sick and in prison, and you did not visit me. Then they also shall answer him, saying: Lord, when did we see thee hungry, or thirsty, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister to thee?  Then he shall answer them, saying: Amen I say to you, as long as you did it not to one of these least, neither did you do it to me. And these shall go into everlasting punishment: but the just, into life everlasting. (Mathew 25:31-46)

But he that shall scandalize one of these little ones that believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone should be hanged about his neck, and that he should be drowned in the depth of the sea. Woe to the world because of scandals. For it must needs be that scandals come: but nevertheless woe to that man by whom the scandal cometh. And if thy hand, or thy foot scandalize thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee. It is better for thee to go into life maimed or lame, than having two hands or two feet, to be cast into everlasting fire. And if thy eye scandalize thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee. It is better for thee having one eye to enter into life, than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire. See that you despise not one of these little ones: for I say to you, that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father who is in heaven.(Matthew 18:6-10)

Thus saith the Lord: Heaven is my throne, and the earth my footstool: what is this house that you will build to me? and what is this place of my rest? My hand made all these things, and all these things were made, saith the Lord. But to whom shall I have respect, but to him that is poor and little, and of a contrite spirit, and that trembleth at my words? (Isaiah 66:1-2)

No man can serve two masters. For either he will hate the one, and love the other: or he will sustain the one, and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon. (Matthew 6:24)

And I say to thee: That thou art Peter; and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. And I will give to thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven. And whatsoever thou shalt bind upon earth, it shall be bound also in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose upon earth, it shall be loosed also in heaven. (Matthew 16:18-19)

Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you. You will seek me and find me; when you seek me with all your heart, I will be found by you, says the LORD, and I will restore your fortunes and gather you from all the nations and all the places where I have driven you, says the LORD. (Jeremiah 29:12-14)

He called a little child to him, and placed the child among them. And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.  Therefore, whoever takes the lowly position of this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. (Matthew 18:2-4)

Although My greatness is beyond understanding, I commune only with those who are little. I demand of you a childlike spirit. (Diary, 332)

You are my great joy; your love and your humility make Me leave the heavenly throne and unite Myself with you. Love fills up the abyss between My greatness and your nothingness.`` (Diary, 512)

Tell sinners that no one shall escape My Hand; if they run away from My Merciful Heart, they will fall into My Just Hands. Tell sinners that I am always waiting for them, that I listen intently to the beating of their heart... When will it beat for Me? Write that I am speaking to them through their remorse of conscience, through their failures and sufferings, through thunderstorms, through the voice of the Church. And if they bring all My graces to naught, I begin to be angry with them, leaving them alone and giving them what they want” (Diary, 1728).

We should listen to the words of Jesus! We are totally dependant on God and His Grace whether we like it or not! On our own we can do nothing, with Him we can do everything ... after all He is GOD our Creator!

Explaining the Faith - Catholicism: The Fullness of the Truth - Father Chris Alar, MIC, Marian Fathers of the Immaculate Conception, The National Shrine of The Divine Mercy Stockbridge, MA

"You are saved by faith not by works of the law." (Romans 3:28)

Hear Father Chris Alar explain why the Catholic faith is the one true faith founded by Jesus Christ and why no other religion can make that claim, why priests can forgive sins, and why the sacraments are guaranteed grace.

Father Alar states the following: "Popes and The Papacy - This is really confusing for people. People always say, you stupid Catholics think your pope is infallible. The teaching of the church ... in other words, do we believe the pope is infallible? ... yes but with conditions. The pope can be wrong just like you are me. The only time he is infallible is when he speaks "ex cathedra" (literally, "from the chair"), declaring it as infallible or in union with his college of bishops declaring it infallible in terms of faith and morals, not social justice.

Peter, the first pope is mentioned 191 times in the bible and John is only mentioned 48. All of the other apostles combined are only mentioned 130 times, yet Peter is mentioned 191 times. Because after the apostles died this is important that an authority was passed down, that more authority is needed to guard against heresy once the apostles died. So it makes perfect sense, that we have to continue this apostolic tradition in the chair of Peter. There has to be unity, otherwise you will have 40,000 different religions. That's what happened in the Protestant Reformation. You need to understand, there has to be a unity. Every institution has to have a leader.

Now one of the most fascinating facts about the papacy I ever heard and learned in seminary, if you ever question (and you can mention this to your non-catholic brothers and sisters) about the authority of the pope listen to this -  Around 80 AD, the church at Corinth had issues and one apostle was still alive, John the beloved disciple. But, the Church at Corinth which was much closer to John than Rome, yet the Church at Corinth who did they go to? Did they go to John the living apostle? Well every non-catholic in this room would say yes, but if you are a good catholic and you know your history, you would say no. You know who they went to? Who did the church at Corinth go to, to help them? Believe it or not, John (with his blessing), they went to Clement the first, the fourth pope, even though John was still alive, the apostle who laid his head on the breast of Christ was still alive, yet the Church at Corinth went to Clement the first in Rome for guidance over John, with John's blessing. John said: "I am not the head of the church, Clement the first (the pope) is." Could you imagine this? ... tell this to your non-Catholic friends  Again I am not lowering other religions, I am elevating our Catholic faith where it belongs. This is so important. Why aren't priests preaching this from the rooftops? I don't get it. Do you know that in the first 200 years, all the popes except 1 were martyred. The Romans sure knew who the head of the church was because they sought them out and killed them.

A lot of people will point to the fact that Peter is not the head of the church because of what the bible says. Non-catholics will point to the bible and say go to the original greek. What does it say? It says ... Peter on this rock you will build my church, no ... it says Petra ... if it was Peter it would have been Petros ... because the masculine Peter for rock would have been Petros but instead the greek has Petra, which is feminine, so it could not be talking about Peter. What is the problem with that and how do you defend this? You know what the answer is?

Jesus didn't speak greek to his apostles, never. Jesus spoke aramaic. In aramaic there is only one word for rock, kepha (no two versions of that word). He meant Peter. The pope is in scripture everywhere (Matthew16:18,  Luke 22:32, Mat hew16:19, John 21:15-17, Matthew 16:19). Jesus had the ultimate authority to forgive sins and he delegated that to the apostles (Matthew 16:19, Matthew 18:18, John 20:23). They had the authority to forgive sins, pronounce judgments on doctrine, and make decisions on church discipline."

"You created my inmost self, knit me together in my mother's womb." (Psalms 139:13)

Pope Francis Sings His Favourite Song with Youth "Vive Jesús, El Señor" (The Lord Jesus Lives)

Pope Francis: Being afraid of change is a temptation from the devil  (*Click Here for PDF*)

"I am giving you three ways of exercising mercy toward your neighbour: the first - by deed, the second - by word, the third - by prayer. In these three degrees is contained the fullness of mercy, and it is an unquestionable proof of love for Me. By this means a soul glorifies and pays reverence to My mercy. Yes, the first Sunday after Easter is the Feast of Mercy, but there must also be acts of mercy, and I demand the worship of My mercy through the solemn celebration of the Feast and through the veneration of the image which is painted. By means of this image I shall grant many graces to souls. It is to be a reminder of the demands of My mercy, because even the strongest faith is of no avail without works." (Diary 742)
