In his homily for the concluding Mass of the synod of bishops held last October on the new evangelization, Benedict XVI spoke of “the urgent need to proclaim Christ anew in places where the light of faith has been weakened, in places where the fire of God is more like smouldering cinders, crying out to be stirred up, so that they can become a living flame that gives light and heat to the whole house.” (Oct. 28, 2012) Visit this article by Fr.
