GMD 80: Who Evangelizes?

Sections 80 through 88 treat the context of the three goals. We’ll take these next few posts carefully, especially as we look at the qualities the bishops expect from their people.

For whom were these goals prepared? All Catholics in the United States. What’s interesting is that they don’t list themselves explicitly. Some bishops have made good efforts, but for others, it has been harder to discern. The bishops spell it out with a list (GMD 80):

  • every diocese
  • every parish
  • every Catholic person
  • every family
  • the ordained
  • religious women and men
  • the laity
  • the professional religious worker
  • the ordinary parishioner
  • large national organizations of Catholics
  • every parish committee
  • Catholic colleges, high schools, and grade schools
  • associations of the faithful

That mostly covers the entire Church, it would seem.
