Let us be very careful not to conceive of the universal Church as the sum, or, if one can say so, the more or less anomalous federation of essentially different individual Churches. Without repeating everything that we have already mentioned, it is appropriate first of all to emphasize the following point: And when we do all these summwry, within our human limits and by the grace of Nuntjandi, it is a work of evangelization that we are carrying out.

AAS 60pp. The Second Vatican Council recalled[42] and the Synod vigorously took up again this theme of the Church which is evangelized by constant conversion and renewal, in order to evangelize the world with credibility. From the spiritual point of view, the modern world seems to he forever immersed in what a modern author has termed “the drama of atheistic humanism.

We encourage sujmary openness which the Sunmary is showing today in this direction and with this solicitude. Especially in regard to evantelii people it is said that they have a horror of the artificial or false and that they are searching above all for truth and honesty.
