Homily / What was the original evangelization? What were the apostles about? When we look at that carefully we see that it was about bringing people into a relationship with God through Jesus Christ. It was about peoples lives being redeemed through an encounter with Jesus. It was about coming to know that Jesus is the living Lord who is alive today and on the move.
Coming into a relationship with Jesus is the essence of the new evangelization. Everything else flows from that.
