(Reflection on Sunday
"Great is your faith! Be it done for you as you desire"
"This passage (Matthew 15:21) describes the
only occasion in which Jesus ministered outside of Jewish territory.
(Tyre and Sidon were fifty miles north of Israel and still exist
today in modern Lebanon.) A Gentile woman, a foreigner who was not a
member of the Jewish people, puts Jesus on the spot by pleading for
his help. At first Jesus seemed to pay no attention to her, and this
made his disciples feel embarrassed. Jesus does this to test the
woman to awaken faith in her."

What is the new Evangelization?
Dcn Michael Ross, St. Michael the Archangel Parish, Kailua-Kona, HI
The New Evangelization is a notion principally advanced by St.
John Paul II. In contrast to the traditional evangelization of
non-Christian peoples, the new evangelization focuses on reaching
out to unchurched Catholics, what others would call “cultural
Catholics,” those that are Catholic in name but not in mind, heart
and soul. There are four essential goals: First, we must
recognize that cultural developments of recent times offer new
opportunities for evangelization. In particular, new technologies
that facilitate mass communication and personal interaction are to
be used to share Christ with others. Everything from EWTN to tweets
from pastors to myParish App on smart phones is an example of this.
Second, the new evangelization should avoid compromise with any
cultural assumptions that in theory or practice deny the dignity of
any class of human beings. Messages of power, wealth, honor and
endless pleasure seem normal and healthy in our culture but are
usually the antithesis of the message of Jesus Christ.
Third, the new evangelization must overwhelmingly affirm the love of
God and of Jesus Christ. People are won over by lives lived out in
love, not words of coercion. Finally, each of us is called to a
deeper appreciation of the value of holiness in one’s life and
communion with others in the name and body of Christ. .
