DR. DANIELLA ZSUPAN-JEROME, «WHAT’S NEW ABOUT THE NEW EVANGELIZATION»
4 DECEMBER, 8 PM CST
Evangelization: the word brings to mind a variety of images of being Christian. Although one may associate this word with specific activity or denomination, in fact, it is the most fundamental disposition of being Christian, following Jesus’ command to «Go into the whole world and proclaim the [Good News] to every creature» (Mark 16:15). Evangelization simply means to announce the Good News of God’s salvation, and to do it through word, deed and witness of life. Following the Second Vatican Council, evangelization has re-emerged as a key word to define the mission and identity of Church. The “new evangelization”, a phrase coined by Blessed John Paul II, focuses especially on the need for the Good News to imbue and re-animate the lives of those Catholics who have drifted away from the community of faith. Coupled with the Year of Faith, the New Evangelization remains a current topic for Pope Benedict XVI, from whom the Church anticipates an apostolic exhortation on the subject.
Dr. Daniella Zsupan-Jerome is Assistant Professor in the Loyola Institute for Ministry. She is author of Daily Prayer 2013 (Liturgical Training Publications, 2012), and she is interested in the implications of social media for catechesis and evangelization. Dr. Zsupan-Jerome’s webinar will discuss the vocation of evangelization and what’s new about the new evangelization.
