Scott Hahn Addresses the New Evangelization
Posted by St. Paul Center on 10.26.11 |
VANCOUVER—Catholics have been given the task of spreading the message, says Dr. Scott Hahn.
They must be trained to evangelize and catechize, and they must be sacramentalized (partake in the sacraments), Hahn said during a recent lecture on mystagogy at Regent College.
Mystagogy, a Greek term meaning “to be guided into the mysteries,” leads believers to a deeper understanding of the Liturgy of the Mass and its Scriptural and historical roots. In recent years Catholic theologians have recovered its value and have applied it to the new evangelization.
