Pope Francis encouraged young people to evangelize through the example of their lives during his general audience Dec. 2.

 

“Mission, in fact, is a force capable of transforming the church within itself even before it does so in the life of peoples and cultures,”

— Pope Francis during a recent assembly of the Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples.

Pope Francis said that in evangelizing young churches, missionaries are called to a step-by-step, “kerygmatic approach to faith” and that missionaries must learn to listen to the cry of the poor and the marginalized.

“Let us pray and work so that the church is always more along the lines of the Acts of the Apostles,” which describes the lifestyle and missionary enthusiasm of the first Christians, he said. “Let us be inspired by the power of the Gospel and the Holy Spirit.”
