Duc In Altum!

Our Holy Father, the soon to be beatified, Pope John Paul 2
has called us all to participate in the New Evangelization.

Duc In Altum!    Put Out Into the Deep  (Lk 5:4)

"Let us go forward in hope! A new millennium is opening before the Church like a vast ocean upon which we shall venture, relying on the help of Christ. The Son of God, who became incarnate two thousand years ago out of love for humanity, is at work even today: we need discerning eyes to see this and, above all, a generous heart to become the instruments of his work. Did we not celebrate the Jubilee Year in order to refresh our contact with this living source of our hope? Now, the Christ whom we have contemplated and loved bids us to set out once more on our journey: "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit" (Mt 28:19). The missionary mandate accompanies us into the Third Millennium and urges us to share the enthusiasm of the very first Christians: we can count on the power of the same Spirit who was poured out at Pentecost and who impels us still today to start out anew, sustained by the hope "which does not disappoint" (Rom 5:5)."

 An excellent source for free downloads of pamphlets covering a wide range of topics including Catholic faith, morals and devotions. If you have a friend at work or an acquaintance with a particular question about the Church, a pamphlet can be very helpful to answer these questions, and may act as a springboard for discussion.
