Pontifical Council for the New Evangelization

Pope Benedict XVI has instituted a new Pontifical Council for Evangelization. Perhaps the document explaining the details will be printed in English soon. Here is the article on it.

"In an official decree, Benedict said the new office would work with bishops to promote church doctrine, use modern communication methods to get the church's message out and mobilize missionary-type activities using members of religious orders and new religious movements."

"a mere bureaucratic attempt to fix a complex cultural phenomenon"

That sounds about right. I'll drop dead if this new initiative makes any difference. My experience is that evangelization is a trickle-up action, not trickle-down.
