    Written by a highly respected cardinal and a former head of the Vatican office for worship and sacraments, this book shows how the local Catholic parish in any town has tremendous potential to evangelize its surrounding community. Francis Cardinal Arinze reveals the important roles of both priests and laity in spreading the Gospel within the parish and beyond.

    This work can help priests to realize the many great possibilities they have to be strong spiritual leaders and to inspire their parishioners to become committed and effective evangelists. It can awaken all the members of a parish to live and to share more zealously the saving power of Jesus Christ.

    "The Church's new commitment to evangelization is one of the great fruits of the Second Vatican Council. So it's very appropriate that the youngest bishop at the fourth session of the Council, Francis Arinze, should offer the worldwide Church this important reflection on how the New Evangelization can ignite the spirit of mission in our parishes."
    - George Weigel, Author, The Fragility of Order

    "A beautifully written, eminently practical and useful reflection on enriching the evangelical spirit of the parish and extending its missionary outreach. This is a book to enjoy, learn from, and re-read."
    - Most Reverend Charles Chaput, Archbishop of Philadelphia

    "Cardinal Arinze's constant recourse to St. John Paul II is refreshing, as is his equally constant encouragement of priests. This is a book for any committed Catholic -- clerical, religious or lay -- but it certainly ought to be a text book in every seminary course in pastoral theology."
    -- Reverend Peter Stravinskas, Ph.D., S.T.D., Editor, The Catholic Response
