Evangelization

Another essential program of shrine ministry is evangelization both for church volunteers and church goers.  The ministry of evangelization is primarily exercised through  prophetic preaching, connecting the Word of God to the daily issues, concerns and aspirations especially of the ordinary people.  Evangelization in the shrine is done through retreats, seminars, short catechesis, instructions before the mass, etc.  It is our hope that an organized and robust evangelization will lead to the active participation of church group members and church goers in the mission of the shrine.

 

 

TV's at the Shrine

 

The aim of the TV's is to aid the active participation of the assembly especially in the songs and responses in the masses and novenas.   The TV's will also be used for evangelization and catechesis especially on the liturgy and sacraments in between masses and novenas.  Furthermore, the TV will be utilized for disseminating and drumming up support for the many programs and services of the Shrine and the Philippine Church.  It is also envisioned that the TV will be useful in seminars and talks in the Shrine, for example, Bible, Social Teachings of the Church, etc., being planned for the future.

 

Reactions of the people to the TV were varied from a bit of cynicism to extreme approval. But in general, most of the reactions were positive as many affirmed the helpfulness of the TV in their participation and growing appreciation of the liturgy and teachings of the church.

 

Indeed media can be harnessed for evangelization.  Unfortunately, media has been used in our society to a great extent to promote the values and goods of a commercialized and materialistic world.  Even so, the Church has not yet fully maximized the potential of media.  The church in general, has been lagging behind big businesses and other institutions in tapping the rich potential of media.  Without being oblivious of the harm media might inflict on the faith of the people, multi-media and other technological resources is a great aid in proclaiming the good news in a fresh and revitalized manner.
