The primary focus for evangelising is the love of Jesus which we have received, the experience of salvation which urges us to ever greater love of him (Evangelii Gaudium n.264). Those who have opened their hearts to God’s love, heard his voice and received his light cannot keep this gift to themselves. (Lumen Fidei n.37).

Evangelisation is characterised by an encounter with the living Jesus, formation in discipleship and mission in the world.
