Making the New Evangelization More Than a Nice Idea [Zenit]

San Antonio Archbishop Calls Out to Laity

SAN ANTONIO, Texas, FEB. 15, 2010 ( For the new evangelization to become a reality, laypeople have to step up.

This is the affirmation made by Archbishop José Gomez of San Antonio in a pastoral letter released today, the fifth anniversary of his installation as archbishop.

“The proclamation of Christ is not an option or an obligation reserved for bishops, priests, deacons and religious. It is the duty of every believer,” the archbishop wrote.
