Publication of Preparatory Document for the November 2012 Synod of Bishops discussion on the "New Evangelization"

The Synod of Bishops today released a "lineamenta" in preparation for next year's Synod of Bishops which Pope Benedict has directed towards a discussion of the "new evangelization." 

The document can be found at:
 www.vatican.va/roman_curia/synod/documents/rc_synod_doc_20110202_lineamenta-xiii-assembly_en.html

A lineamenta document "is a text written in preparation for the convocation of the special assembly of bishops, before a synod occurs. It is intended to encourage bishops to invite the participation of all in the Church so that they can enter into discussion and take a pastoral inventory." [quote taken from Wikipedia].


I am still working my way through the text.  More to follow.
