Please, not another ‘program’ for evangelization

Catholic Culture, Phil Lawler:

At his Wednesday public audience this week, Pope Francis compared Vatican II with the first council of the young Church, the Council of Jerusalem. Both councils, the Pope remarked, issued a call to evangelize the world. Yes, but there is also a marked difference between the results of the two councils. After the Council of Jerusalem, the apostles quickly spread the Gospel message across the world. After Vatican II, the Church talked about evangelization.

Does that seem harsh? Look at the circumstances facing the Church during and immediately after the two councils, and compare the concrete results. Report is here.
