Signs for Global Evangelization

We are now more aware of other countries and their peoples through new technology. We are experiencing a convergence that calls for a new cultural ethic. This ethic alerts us to the fact that wealthy counties may carry out a "cultural invasion" particularly with the media. Avoiding a spiritual and cultural colonialism means that we recognize others as brothers and sisters. Accepting the richness of individual cultures can give a soul to our 21st century. This also means making a dilberate choice for the poor and neglected as an essential expression of evangelization. There is a social relevance to our faith. The theology of redemption is correlated to the liberation of the human person. If the Absolute is missing, basic human rights begin to crumble. Another sign for global evangelization is that the role of every Christian is essential for human promotion, a more just society, and as witnesses to living Christ today.
