|"the silent witness of life still
remains the only way of proclaiming God's Kingdom in many places in Asia"
(Ecclesia in Asia, 23) |
All those who are engaged in Evangelization work know too well the truth of this statement of the Asian Bishops'. Not only in Asia, and not only in some particular situations (where there is no other possibility of Evangelization), but always and everywhere, Evangelization needs the back up of "Christian living". Today's people do not believe in "preachers, but in witnesses". We thank all those who are willing to share with us their experiences of Evangelization through the silent witness of life ,and their understanding that Mission is contemplative action and active contemplation.
