"What I have suggested is that it is not supposed to look like a war or an argument. Rather, it is supposed to look like an invitation which is both personal and deeply cultural at the same time—reflected in everything one does and makes, from the family on up. The New Evangelization will reflect the serenity of Christian hope, avoiding whatever is self-conscious, defensive, pugnacious or shrill. It will proceed not so much through logic and proofs (though these should be offered gently and without rancor when requested or needed), but through the deeper reasons that love alone possesses."

What does it mean to be "People of God"? First of all, it means that God does not really belong to any people; for it is He who calls us, who summons us, who invites us to be part of his people, and this invitation is open to all, without distinction, because God’s mercy “desires all people to be saved "(1 Tim 2:4). Jesus does not tell the Apostles and us to form an exclusive group, an elite group. Jesus says: Go and make disciples of all nations (cf. Mt 28:19). St Paul says that within the people of God, in the Church, "there is neither Jew nor Gentile ... for you are all one in Christ Jesus" (Gal 3:28). I would like to say to those who feel far from God and the Church, to those who are fearful or indifferent, to those who think they can no longer change: the Lord is calling you too to be part of his people and he does it with great respect and love! He invites us to be a part of this people, the people of God

"I know your works, your labor, and your endurance, and that you cannot tolerate the wicked; you have tested those who call themselves apostles but are not, and discovered that they are impostors. Moreover, you have endurance and have suffered for my name, and you have not grown weary.

Yet I hold this against you: you have lost the love you had at first."
Rev 2

"It often happens that Christians are more concerned for the social, cultural and political consequences of their commitment, continuing to think of the faith as a self-evident presupposition for life in society. In reality, not only can this presupposition no longer be taken for granted, but it is often openly denied. Whereas in the past it was possible to recognize a unitary cultural matrix, broadly accepted in its appeal to the content of the faith and the values inspired by it, today this no longer seems to be the case in large swathes of society, because of a profound crisis of faith that has affected many people." 

"We could briefly state the core of Saint Paul's intuition in something like the following words. In order to enter into God's will, in order to live his will, I do not have to become a Jewish proselyte; I do not need to submit to the mass of prescriptions contained in the Torah. It suffices to convert to Jesus and to live in communion with him."
~Ratzinger, from "Paul's Gospel" in Gospel, Catechesis, Catechism: Sidelights on the _Catechism of the Catholic Church #Gospel   

"The four basic texts of the New Testament are not simply books but the written record of a proclamation. […] We could thus say that to evangelize means to acquaint men with Jesus as we come to know him in the Gospels. To evangelize is to introduce men into a communion of life with him as well as into the fellowship of disciples, the community that journeys with him." 
~Ratzinger, from "The Gospel in the Gospels" in _Gospel, Catechesis, Catechism" #Gospel
