Africa's Good News - Integral Evangelization in Africa
Sean Wales CSsR
To set the scene I will say something about the language of evangelization, which can be a bit of a puzzle to some people. This will be followed by a brief look at some milestones in Catholic appreciation of evangelization. The two Synods for Africa have made significant contributions to mission and evangelization which deserve attention. I will then reflect on the meaning of 'Integral Evangelization' and try to flesh this out with some examples. The dynamic contribution of Pope Francis in his exhortation on evangelization helps to bring out the urgent priorities facing all Christians. Finally it would be helpful to look at some of the challenges which we face in our missionary vocation.
