The session started with an invitation from the liturgy team to follow Jesus joyfully and enthusiastically. The speaker of the day was Fr. Jürgen Ommerborn SVD. He commenced his topic about “The Church’s understanding of evangelization today” taken from the point of view of different documents of the Church. Evangelization is the proclamation of Christ by word and the testimony of life in the spirit of dialogue.
Prayer should accompany the journey of missionaries so that the proclamation of the word will be effective through God’s grace. Fr. Arnold wanted to evangelize all people, not only the pagans. Nowadays for us, mission has its place among the migrants and refugees; the big cities and the remote areas; among the poor and the wealthy.
Fr. Jürgen presented the person of Fr. Arnold as the great communicator. Even before starting the mission house, he was already publishing various magazines and prayers. This passion was shared with the brothers and our first sisters, who were involved in the evangelization through the service at the printing press and by writing animating letters.
He concluded his presentation by giving us encouragement to joyfully continue the service of communication. After taking time in the group to discuss some points about the Manual for Communication and Technology, we celebrated the Holy Eucharist enlivened by songs in diverse languages.
The day ended with lovely presentations from four different SSpS provinces/regions.
