EG Ch 1: THE CHURCH’S MISSIONARY TRANSFORMATION

19. Evangelization takes place in obedience to the missionary mandate of Jesus: “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you” (Mt 28:19-20). In these verses we see how the risen Christ sent his followers to preach the Gospel in every time and place, so that faith in him might spread to every corner of the earth.

The sub-headings in Chapter One, together with their paragraph numbers,  are:

I. A Church which goes forth [20-24]

Taking the first step, being involved and supportive, bearing fruit and rejoicing [24]

II. Pastoral activity and conversion [25-33]

An ecclesial renewal which cannot be deferred [27-33]

III. From the heart of the Gospel [34-39]

IV. A mission embodied within human limits [40-45]

V. A mother with an open heart [46-49]
