Pope Benedict XVI on Sunday called on bishops from around the world to revive the Christian faith among those who have forgotten or abandoned it.
The Church needs a new âmissionary dynamicâ of lay people and must pay âparticular attention (to) baptized people who do not live according to the requirements of the baptism,â he said as 262 bishops wound up a three-week huddle that broached all major issues and crises shaking the 2,000-year-old institution.
Clerics must also apply ânew methods, a new language that suits different culturesâ in their bid for a ânew evangelism,â he said during a closing mass at Saint Peterâs....
What does this mean? Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers (Eph 4:29). But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison. Therewith bless we God, even the Father; and therewith curse we men, which are made after the similitude of God. Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be. Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter? Can the fig tree, my brethren, bear olive berries? either a vine, figs? so can no fountain both yield salt water and fresh. Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom (James 3:8-12). It is of the Lord's mercies we are not consumed.

David Shoebridge wrote: It became apparent that there was a formal memorandum of understanding between the police and the church we saw this police officer engaged on the internal church committee. And then when we asked for the details of the evidence that had been given to that police officer, we were told that there was a protocol in place that either all the evidence was returned by the police officer or anything that was retained by the police was shredded.
