recipients of the announcement are diverse. So it should be three different Evangelistic ways. These three activities should be interdependent, should not miss in any parish, pastoral evangelization program, whatever. (Each is enclosed in his pastoral work, and nothing more in his pastoral. Others speak only of new evangelization and nothing more than evangelization and mission adgentes’s only) and indeed says Juan Pablo II the adgentes activity is the primary activity of the Church, is the vocation of the Church par excellence. These teachings from theology of evangelization, are still not being assimilated by our ecclesial communities, we are very far from this. We locked us in ourselves, it is the big problem that may fall over the Church. It is a sin of Israel the particularisms.
The Catholic Church, the catholicity of the Church means universality. The Church can not enclose itself. The Church is not only for Christians in Latin America, or, for the Christians of North America, or Europe. The Mission of the Church consists of the catholicity of the Church. The Church is Catholic when it is missionary. The Church of Jesus Christ, it is missionary, or, is not the Church of Jesus Christ. It is what he says Juan Pablo II, there is nothing to negotiate here. John Paul II, says and speaks of the permanent validity of the mandate missionary.
Why? After Vatican Council II, missionary there was crisis in the environment (men and women, can save way known only to God, by your mercy, and kindness. Then what sense have missions) first crisis. A crisis of misunderstanding. Why exits the Dominus Jesus to correct that. Second crisis. In the 1960s and 1970s, many African States are becoming independent, and it is the time in which colonization, is being rejected at the global level by the countries of the third world. And unfortunately missionary is a synonym for colonization. Third crisis. It is the Bum of the social sciences. The 1960s and 1970s in Latin America. That world of the Marxism of the guerrillas. Where the missionaries go to devote its forces to other topics, as the theme of the liberation theology. If we analyze this. Not we ponder what the adgentes mission, as they were urgent issues that ended up absorbing the theological reflection. Reflect on the faith lived by thousands of men in a context of suffering. It is meritorious to systematize their faith experience. That’s what the theologians of liberation. Staying faithful to the God of life. This reflection is valid, enriches and has enriched the Church. From there Juan Pablo II to defend an authentic Christian liberation theology, and not a Marxist liberation theology. How many energies losses to the interior of the Church, in clashes and tensions.
